    Kudos to the Board.

    Fire 'em all!

    Hire 'em back one at a time as they prove themselves worthy of the job description...;teach our children what ever it is your were hired to teach...or get out of our way! Teaching should be performance based, not union protected, The teacher's union does more damage to our educational system than any other source.

    rightwinger wins the stupidest quote of the day award!

    Now during high unemployment times is the best time to fire or shake-up all the teachers, because there is a larger pool of unemployed talented teachers to select from. The school has the best chance now to find just the right teachers. Way to go!

    I concur with the firing.....I like unions, but here in Oz, they are way to powerful. Quite a few lazy teachers at my kids' school for sure..

    If the scores are historically horrible, then the parents are assholes who don't care about education and instead use the school system as a day care for kids 5 to 18. Good education principles begin with parents at home who name names, ground kids, reward kids, and push kids to excel in school.

    Many of my family are school teachers and college professors, and almost every last one of them supports the firing of the teachers because they will not work with the supe and the board in trying to change the culture of failure there.

    But I will tell you this: if the parents don't support education, nothing is going to work for the great majority of the kids.

    A weird thing about Union:
    A while ago, most German workers bought the idea that Unions in Germany are too powerfull, and wages/benefits too high.
    We really cut down on both for a while.
    Not a single Job got safer.
    We now have the cheapest labor costs of western Europe, and the corporation want even "less wages".
    Amazingly enough, America, which has quite pitifull labor protections compared to Germany, and relativly weak Unions, seems have the same chorus.
    I bet, if Unions dissappear tomorow, a grand total of 0 additional jobs will be created.
