    I do know. Sorry, but you're wrong again. All anyone has to do is follow procedure. If they can't do that, they likely don't really have a reason to fire them.

    LOL!

    what self respecting poster would pass off an interview with the ed dept as a link?

    a person who connects to whitehouse.gov, perhaps?

    or a debater who cites comedy central?

    hey, do you think perhaps professor zirkel is a dept chair?

    LOL!

    Organizers of three recall campaigns targeting Democratic state senators who fled Wisconsin to block anti-union legislation, filed signatures on Thursday that could force special elections.

    Again, hard? Subjective. Can you or can't you fire them? They do get fired you know.

    BTW Prof, do you read your articles? As the person in the opening example was not being fired for poor teaching, but off duty behavor, and was still going through a process of being fired. Most places, union or not, have a process. We don't have tenure here, but they still have to go through a process.

    Of course they can be fired. It's just a difficult thing to accomplish. This isn't just teachers either, this is across most public sector jobs. Fact is public sector employees have much higher levels of job security. This even with the current buget battles and potential firing of teachers in some states.

    Yep about half the number of recall petitions that have been successfully filed against Republicans, that's my point.

    About half? Not so good at math are you?

    3 dems and 6 reps is exactly half.

    Yes, I think it's been very well known since the process started that Democrats were much more organized, even getting help from the dem party. Republican efforts were not nearly as organized and did not recieve much, if any, help from the republican party. Many in WI were lamenting this fact, as they felt the republican party was not taking the threat nearly as seriously as they should have.

    Addtionally, out of the 6 petitions submitted against republucans, no one seriously thinks many will actually lose the recall election.

    On the other hand, out of the 3 submitted against Democrats, all 3 have a serious chance of losing.
