Republican Senator Claims Teachers Shouldn’t WORRY About Ending Seniority Based Layoffs

Oh you silly teachers, I don’t think you should worry that we are ending seniority/experience based layoffs and replacing it with an unproven system, claims Republican State Senator Gen Olson.

Don’t you get it? You experienced teachers are great and will obviously be kept employed because you are great but we just can’t stand by and base budget cutting layoffs on your really great experience. Hopefully that clears up any confusion as to why I think your experience is great and valuable but really ought to be ended as a reason for employing you.

You have to love it when someone gets caught up in a logical loop…

    More Loopy logic: your experience makes you great, but it also has no effect on being a great teacher, and your pay should have nothing to do with it.

    This is all hogwash.  As if ending teacher seniority will help increase the quality of education.  New teachers will still be out the door and those that have survived will now be afraid to do what they feel is right.
