    The Associated Press: Struggling Georgia school firing entire staff

    Does anyone really think a new staff will turn this school around?

    Don't they have NCLB to thank for this?

    Well, since the last bunch were crap, what's the harm in bringing in new. They probably can't screw up any worse.

    Are they doing this to get rid of the Union or to bring in a union or neither?

    Principles were all once a teacher, not all teachers (Principles) make good managers. They make tons of mistakes on budget issues and terrible managers. I personally think that the Education system would be better if there were not unionized at all.

    While unemployment is high, it is the best time to clean house. Now is their best chance to get some real talent because they have such a large pool of unemployed to pick from.

    No.

    Read the freakin' article for once.

    NCLB allows several options other than firing the entire staff.

    Don't get you panties in a wad, this option is only excersised 20-30 times a year.

    Plus, this school was at the bottom for SEVEN years. WTF did they think was gonna happen? Without NCLB, they would have simply continued going nowhere for ANOTHER 7 Years: You think that woyld be a better option?
