Subject: Elections

Although I generally side with unions and the right to organize, I have to say that tenure
for teachers is an abuse of the system. When I was in the 8th and 9th grade I had an
incompetent English teacher who enjoyed abusing students. But the principal said that
there was nothing he could do because of tenure. Teachers with tenure can't be fired.

The very idea that some people get a job for life without any kind of accountability is
just fundamentally wrong. The teacher stayed in her job till she was 65 and then went on
to draw from the system for another 25 years till she finally died at the age of 90.

I support the rights of teachers to have unions but I also support the right of students
to be protected from teachers who aren't qualified to teach. So I'll support the teachers
when the teachers support the students. Tenure must go.
