My Reponse to the Vergara Decision

It is just amazing that politicians, billionaires and significant portion of the general public seem to think you can improve schools by attacking teachers, undermining their tenure protections, depriving them of due process, and generally viewing them as an enemy of children and families who have to be watched, evaluated and scripted lest their deep seated selfishness do their students and the nation irreparable harm. Has any other society ever thought that this approach to the teaching profession would produce better schools and more confident and talented students? It will result in fear ridden teachers and demoralized stress filled students. So keep it up.
It's a great way to break a society down starting with its foundation- its educational system
