Time‘s “Rotten Apples” cover on firing bad teachers is “a slap in the face to every teacher who has dedicated his or her life to bettering the lives of children,” opines Democratic operative Donna Brazile.
Taking years to fire a bad teacher is the slap in the face to the rest of us, responds Darren on Right on the Left Coast. “I’m against what I call undue process, wherein it really does take years to fire a bad teacher. And if unions were any more than parasites they’d want to get rid of the bad teachers, but instead teachers unions defend them and help them try to keep their jobs. That, too, is a slap in the face to the rest of us.”
