Here's a great quote for you

And we must credit the Star Ledger for it; a spokesperson for the New Jersey Education Association said the follolwing:

“Tenure is not a job for life. Tenure is a fair job dismissal process that requires just cause.”

Really, try asking any school board official how it is nearly impossible to dismiss a tenured teacher … I have known teachers who joke upon working three years and securing tenure that now, “I can do just about anything this side of killing someone and I’ll still have a job.”

If the union wants to defend tenure, fine, but admit what it is … a job for life in just about every case.

    I know a teacher in California who has worked for the same school district for 20 years. Every teacher in the district has been asked to submit a resume because they will be reducing the size of the staff. The class sizes are already as large as 35 kids to a class. They have to live within a budget, and no one is exempt from being let go.

    The sad part is that this person’s sister also works in the same school, teaching the same grade, but she teaches in Spanish. My friend is convinced that her sister will never be without a job. She’s not so sure about herself.

    The tenure system in NJ is insane. Other states do not treat teachers like sacred cows, who can never be touched. Good teachers deserve to be rewarded, and bad teachers deserve to be looking for jobs in a different field.

    Teachers have no idea what life in the real world is like.

    They scream like babies over “only” a 4% annual raise in their jobs-for-life while the private sector is grateful to have a job.
