fickenchucker: shtychkn: Teacher tenure really doesn't exist outside of New York.You do have to show cause. But that doesn't make it impossible to fire a teacher. They just have the basic protection all workers should have.You know how I know you don't know what you're talking about? Getting rid of bad teachers around here is about as easy as extracting helium from Mars. or, considering your comment, Uranus. "At will" employment isn't a bad thing, considering I work under those rules and have the same job for 18 years and through three downsizings. Mad skillz, as the kids say, keep one employed.Corollary to my CSB:My brother is a terrible teacher and always in trouble, but unfireable due to tenure.
Fade2black: graeylin: Good job, Mrs. T.I respect someone who takes a stand and lives with the consequences.I wonder what will happen when more and more part-time sub teachers do the same thing: You want me to do what to an item that is entirely part of my personal life? No thanks, find someone else.She most likely has tenure and a nice pension waiting. I doubt the decision was very hard. A true hero of our time.
GoldDude: "In truth, being a caring, lovely woman doesn't give you immunity to ignore a school board policy that's designed to protect everyone make no farking difference whatsoever, but cover our a$$es legally,"
Ima4nic8or: I feel kind of bad for the old lady but I actually side with the school on this one. The first time some pedo picks a kid out from a photo on her page for some kidnapping and rape you know the school will get its ass sued. Not to mention that it didn't sound like she was getting the parents permission to post photos of their kids. Some of us still like some privacy. You won't find any photos of me or my kids online.

No thanks, find someone else.

shtychkn: fickenchucker: Gary-L: There's nothing worse than a public school teacher with tenure^^^^^^^^^^^^^^THISTHISTHIS^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^We ended up home-schooling because of an old out-of touch bat routinely belittled and harassed my child, and the principal couldn't do anything because of tenure. (We didn't home-school for religious reasons, and he's in public high-school now, in NHS, an Eagle Scout, was on the baseball team, and doing just fine),Our not-so CSB:It was an early iteration of Common Core--AKA No Child Left Behind--that gave the biatch the idea to mock him for reading books above his grade level. She called him out in class for "showing off", since he spoke with an elevated vocabulary, and laughed at him for reading Harry Potter books in fourth grade. We asked for meetings and she continually avoided us. The principal did nothing to help--the old piece of shiat should have retired when Reagan left office. When our other son was scheduled to have her the next year we pulled the plug. When the principal called to see why we un-enrolled the kids, I told him because Mrs. Berry of Shady Lane Elementary School in Menomonee Falls was a horrid teacher. He didn't put up any defense of her and said he hoped we would give the junior high a chance. That's principal-speak for "I hear you, dude--please come back to the district when you can".Teacher tenure really doesn't exist outside of New York.You do have to show cause. But that doesn't make it impossible to fire a teacher. They just have the basic protection all workers should have.
The Southern Dandy: The day my employer tells me what to do outside the work environment is the day I'm outta there.
