Love the W quote!
If this article is all you know about this teacher, then please do not comment on his teaching ability. You know part of one side of the story - you don't know what was said, or what provoked it. I'm not defending him because I wasn't there - he should not be condemned in the court of public opinion for the same reason.
The same bill has been introduced by the same representative since the mid-90s - when Clinton was in office, and when Dubya was in office. Watch something besides Faux News every once in a while, so you'll get the real story.
Fire Goseer, Graper, and Schumate, and finally put administrators at Monroe and Dougherty who are up to the job. Getting control of the finances and closing the schools was a good start. Getting rid of poor leaders would be another step in the right direction.
If teachers were 100% responsible for their students' results, then it would make "since". Since an education is something that students earn, and the students are a product of their home environment, then moving teachers wouldn't make much sense. Educating a child is a team-effort between the teacher, the child, and the parent - all are important. How about holding the child accountable for bad behavior and poor grades? How about holding the parent accountable for their child? Teachers at all of the schools are certified. Unfortunately, there isn't a process to certify parents.
There may be a frivolous "Lorenzo Heard" type lawsuit, but there won't be any legitimate lawsuits. Goseer seems the most likely to sue the DCSS for his own incompetence, but then, he thinks lawyers' interpretations of the law are just suggestions. What an idiot.
So you want to move the teachers from the "good" schools to teach the poor kids as punishment? Why not educate the parents of the low achieving students about being involved in their child's education? Why are you so cynical and hateful? You miss "34", don't you?
You don't think there's documentation of the stupidity of the last couple of years? Dr. Mosely won't read the newspaper article about Goseer using school funds to bail out a student. He will see the cancelled check, and the school system's lawyer's report that it was an inappropriate use of funds. He won't read in the Herald that Title I funds were misused. He will read the state's report about how much was misused, and who is responsible. He's been here long enough to do that. Holding people accountable won't earn us any lawsuits.
Bob Beckel is not a liberal democrat. Fox just labels him that, so they can claim to be fair and balanced. Suggesting that we ship out people based on religion is CRAZY!
This is why Dr. Mosely is here. Adminstrators who don't produce, don't deserve to have a downtown job created for them - they deserve to be shown the door.
