The Teachers’ union is outraged. A judge just handed down a ruling that tenure is opposed to students’ constitutional rights.
Today, California. Tomorrow, the world!
Why did it take 70 years?
Of course tenure is a boondoggle. It’s a job forever. The costs of firing hacks and incompetents is too high. The cost just got lower.
Remember the law of economics: “When the cost decreases, more is demanded.”
This is a dark day for incompetent teachers. It is a brighter day for students.
Of course, it would be best for all concerned if the parents pulled their kids out, and subscribed to the Ron Paul Curriculum. Here are 26 great reasons why. The kids would get a better education. They would be safer.
The exodus would reduce the state’s payments to local school districts. Taxes would go down.
Teachers would have to find new careers, maybe in the private sector. There would be an uptick in state productivity.
But until that great day, California’s students will have to settle for this: no more tenure.
We will see if the appeals court reverses this decision. Let’s hope not.
