I watched a movie yesterday -- The Lottery about charter schools in NYC. I'm not a huge fan of charter schools as I'd like every school to be amazing...
But I did learn this.
It costs 250k of taxpayer dollars to fire a teacher.
I'm not surprised, there is litigation up the yang when a teacher needs to be fired and they're unionized.
Not right, not right at all.
I am NOT for employers being able to fire willy-nilly... but if there's documented just cause then action needs to be taken.
Oddly enough, it doesn't cost much at all to lay off a great less senior teacher. I happen to be sleeping around with one of those....
