Firing Teachers = Bad Education

Yes, there are bad teachers. But neither the freakazoid hatred of secular education nor the neoliberal love of corporatized education lead to anything but catastrophe.

... the reason teachers have tenure is so that throwback neanderthals can't fire them for teaching reality instead of superstitious nonsense. The idea that the Republicans are worried about "bad teachers" when they encourage the practice of kids being taught at home by parents who aren't qualified to teach someone how to get up in the morning is a joke. They want to make sure that children are indoctrinated in their worldview. SNIP

So before any liberals get on the education "reform" bandwagon they really need to consider what these conservatives consider bad teaching. It likely isn't what they think it is.
