You are the "nutter." This article is not about budgetary woes, it is about the idiotic last-in, first-out UNION policy. And yes, those teachers will be shown the door by being pink-slipped. I'm a high school teacher of 18 years and can't stand the stupid, good 'ol boy, inefficient policies and mentality of the union that cripple education quality in America.
Unions first priority is job security, NOT quality of education. If that means keeping an incompetent teacher who has been incompetent from day one for the last 25 years, it is doing its job. Unions specialize in mediocrity. And thanks to the union, I can never be paid for my expertise or effectiveness as a teacher--only how LONG I've been a teacher.
