Title

Why It's So Hard to Fire Bad Teachers and How It Hurts Students

Summary

In 17 years of teaching, I worked with far-too-many ineffective, sub-par, even potentially dangerous teachers. I watched how principles ignored the problem because it's a headache to fight, or fought for years before the teacher was reassigned or let go. I saw the damage it did to students. I watched unions fight to keep bad teachers in the classroom. I always wondered why no one seemed to be putting the students' needs first. Isn't that an educator's job? This needs to change.
