Central Falls to fire every high school teacher

"Under threat of losing their jobs if they didn’t go along with extra work for not a lot of extra pay, the Central Falls Teachers’ Union refused Friday morning to accept a reform plan for one of the worst-performing high schools in the state."

I hate to see people lose jobs, but I like when people stand up to unions like this.

Me too. Bravo to Frances Gallo for sticking to her guns and not backing down to the union. Now the school department administration can actually start managing the schools (Wow, what a concept!). Under this plan, 50% of the teachers (many of them bad apples who the union had been protecting from being fired) will now be gone. For good! The top 50 can come back and lead the way.

If this plan works, it can serve as a great example of how we can save our failing inner city public schools, start actually getting value for our hard-earned tax money, and provide our children with a quality education. The cost of public education is totally unsustainable, and we as taxpayers must not let the public employee unions continue to stick it to us in the middle of a recession. This is a small step in the right direction.

The newpaper reported that the average salary for a CF teacher is $72-75,000. Ammortized over a year that is close to $100,000. Not to mention benefits that are far superior to those in the private sector.

Teacher unions challenged in unprecedented face-off

Jim, how much do you think public school teachers should be paid? Tenured public school teachers already make over twice as much as the average salary of private sector workers, not to mention free health care and lavish pensions. And that's not to mention the 6 hour workdays, 2 weeks off for winter break, spring break, Christmas/New Years break, and the whole summer off.

Other than that, I agree with everything you said. You seem to be way out of touch with your party, though! :shades:
