all levels of government do this. They do whatever they want to do then invite comment andRead Morediscussi on to give the people an illusion of having participated in the decision somehow. People in general won't wake up I'm afraid. Just look at the mess we're in. They have FIFA and the Kardashians to keep them medicated.

Sorry, B.C. As we have talked about many times in the comments section on this site, due to theRead Morechan ges at Patch earlier this year, I now cover 16 Patch sites (or 19 cities) on my own so I am spread a bit thinly. And I always appreciate any tips on local stories! Feel free to email your ideas to me at autumn.johnson@patch.com.

Well, Jeff, lawsuit or no, many teachers will gravitate to schools in which students bring a goodRead Mored eal to the table. I'm speaking in terms of life experience, educational opportunity, and prior knowledge. As a faculty member of Always Halcyon School, I left EHS so that I could share my love of history with students who needed less convincing of the benefits of academic pursuit. While it may not sound politically correct, I've never regretted my choice. Besides, AHS is probably more diverse than its sister school: we have a good deal of EVERY type of student, including "students of color," parenthetically, a term I've always abhorred.

By denying tenure and attempting to regulate where good teachers can go you will.... 1. See lessRead Morepeo ple go into teaching and more early retirements. 2. See teachers scared to speak up about serious problems in the schools. 3. See teachers flee to alternative and private schools where they can't be forced into, or forced to stay in, jobs they don't want to be in for 40 years. 4. See people throw the test. If the motivation for doing well on the test is to be sent where you don't want to teach.......hello? The above logic, the article, reminds me of when I was in retail and a certain company I worked for tried to keep the best people in their positions and promote those that floated to the top, if you know what I mean.
