    What a concept. Seriously, who would have ever thought that a liberal like Steve Jobs would finally understand what us conservatives have been saying for decades: that firing bad teachers is good for the educational system.

    It's a real shame that more people don't realize this. If and when teachers are fired, it is often for poor personal judgment (such as doing something inappropriate with a student, or something along those lines).

    The way I see it, bad teachers should be fired, just for being bad teachers. End of story.
