bad-teacherTenured teachers: They cheat, they loaf … they can’t be fired.  Have Big Labor Bosses created an unworkable educational system?

It’s the type of case that led a California judge to rule last week that the state’s tenure rules make it difficult to fire bad teachers and violate students’ right to an equal education.
