    Ain't it great?



    Im all for teachers...but every profession can get laid off. Teachers im sure like other public workers are laid off by seniority, unless the entire campus closes down. Lay offs are just that...they are going to happen as long as they are done fairly and within the contracts there is no beef really no matter how unfortunate it is.

    Actually, it has no meaning to what we were discussing.

    In general, when a school closes one of two things could happen. Either the school closes and the students are enrolled into a new school, or the school closes the students are enrolled into a new school and the old school is restaffed after a period of time and re-opened.
    With who? There are not a lot of teachers out there. We already have schools that can't get anyone. if this was a troubled school, well, it's not likely to have a lot of takers. And if you move them, you just move the problem.
    Irrelevant. Students change to what? Parents change to what?
    To students. Believe it or not, students are part of the equation as learning is a two way street. And parents in to parents who care and are involved and demand effort from their children.

    Apparently the new schools they went to had better results - the root of those better results may be in methodology or teaching, or it may be the teachers themselves.
    How do you know that?

    This is that, "fair shot", that Obama's unions are creating for us. Enjoy!

    Teachers unions were around when Obama was still in diapers, and they're not exactly in favor of laying off teachers.

    Union hands get laid off all the time and the layoffs are based on seniority. Don't cry when The Teacher of The Year gets laid off, because he/she doesn't have enough to seniority to keep her job.

    I noted early on this happens in unions and outside of unions. This is not solely a union issue.

    OK, I see your point.

    Now, what do you think it means when a ten year veteran in a district the size of Sacramento gets laid off as a reduction in force? Hint: Sacramento is not losing population.

    Hmmm. From the menu page, the thread title reads "Teacher of the Year gets laid..." Imagine my disappointment.

    Re: Teacher of the year is laid off.

    I've been thinking about this grades thing.

    You know what my administrators tell me when I come to them about a failing student? They work with me to find ways for the students to NOT be failing tests. That includes giving them less questions on a test, different questions, etc. So their "grade" they get isn't a TRUE snapshot of what that child can do in the first grade. It's simply a dumbed down version so that the child "will have some success". It's no wonder we have over half of a class of 2nd graders that couldn't read this past year. Oy.
