AFT Head Wants To Shorten Time It Takes Tof Fire Incompetent Teachers

But, don’t forget, this is all for the children

On Thursday, the head of the largest national teachers union responded to the continued criticism by offering a major concession, a proposal to make it easier and faster to fire even tenured teachers who are not making the grade.

“Under the proposal, a teacher deemed ‘unsatisfactory’ would be required to submit to an improvement plan which could last anywhere from a month to a year,” said Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers. “If administrators and peer experts thought the teacher had not improved, they would refer it to an arbitrator who would decide within 100 days to keep or dismiss the teacher.”

Under the new proposal it would still take as long as 15 months to remove a teacher who’s ultimately determined unfit to be in a classroom.

Oh, good.

    Unions: “I tell you guys what. I’ll give in almost all of our bargaining power by giving up 1/2A, and you guys agree to give up all of B through H. And we’ll call it even.

    I know we are giving up a whole lot, more than you even ask for, but, we are meek and willing to do whatever for the kids.”
