After teachers receive tenure its really hard to fire them unless they are doing something really bad. I'm wondering if this is a mistake. If they are ineffectual as teachers and your kids aren't learning anything from them I don't think they should be protected from being fired.Teachers union officials denounced a ruling Tuesday by a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge deeming job protections for teachers in California as unconstitutional as a misguided attack on teachers and students.
The ruling represents a major loss for the unions and a groundbreaking win by attorneys who argued that state laws governing teacher layoffs, tenure and dismissals harm students by making them more likely to suffer from grossly ineffective instruction.
Ruling on teacher job security is an attack on students, unions say-Los Angeles Times
I'm not against any job security for them or unions for that matter but if they are proven to be bad teachers they should be replaced. This could be part of the problem as to why the US is lagging behind other countries in education.
