what the law says you can do, and what is actually done are two different things.....
i can call the hr department of a potential employee and get he basics...date of hire, date of separation, etc
if as a manager you stop there, you ought to fired yourself
i have had a lot of success talking to immediate supervisors over the years
and usually, it is a one question response i am looking for....
"would you hire that person again?"
almost all of them give me a yes or no.....

“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
Did I say it was the only problem? No. You seem to be saying that the unions are making the education system better. They aren't. One word: tenure. Something that protects bad teachers from being fired. How is that ok?
Just take a read about tenure. Like I said...it is a travesty. And it isn't so much that all teachers in a union are bad. It is that the union doesn't exist for education. It doesn't exist to help kids. It exists to protect teachers. And it has now turned to protecting BAD teachers.
I would be ok if unions policed themselves and removed bad teachers, but they do not. Not even close.
