Does anyone ever question what replaces tenure? Now we have the “good ol’ boy” buddy system. This stupid policy opens the door wide for racism, nepotism, sexism etc.
There is a reason for using seniority in a reduction in force. Over the centuries it has proven to be the fairest way to treat employees.
The school system has a four-year probationary period, in which time they can let anyone go, no questions asked. That seems like plenty of time to decide if they want to keep a teacher and determine their effectiveness.
Why doesn’t anyone ever question these administrators, superintendents and principals? They are the ones responsible for designing and installing the curriculum and educational plan. Maybe they have gotten away with blaming teachers for their failures long enough.
Who’s evaluating these ex-coaches who run most schools? Wake up, media; do your job.
