    The judge took the unique stance of citing Brown v. Board of Education in ruling that nine students who filed suit against the state and the teachers' union were correct in claiming that the five California laws prevent them from getting an adequate education. Of course, he stayed his own order pending appeal, which the California A-G and the NEA most certainly will do.

    Also yesterday, the Kansas-NEA said they would file suit against a new law that eliminates guaranteed tenure.
    Don't you love the way The Star identified it as the "GOP's tenure law"?? :laugh:

    The concept of tenure is counter-productive, demotivational (I think that is the word in English), and not beneficial to the client ( the student and the taxpayer).

    What ails the nations schools is stupid people being hired as teachers and I guess the tenure laws keep you from getting rid of them.

    I have watched over the last 25 years, the bottom feeders in high school going to college and getting education degrees so that they can teach. Then they take their stupidness into the classroom and try to teach.

    It used to be such a noble profession in which the best of the best wanted to be. Now it seems like the best going into the profession are few and far between.

    I wish someone would start a charter school in which the teachers get paid 80-100K per school year to start. And that they do teacher recruiting not just out of education departments but also out of the Science departments and of folks who have worked in these fields

    I see this not as a way to get rid of bad teachers, but as a shoehorn to get rid of teachers who may make too much money, or don't have the proper ideology.
