Thirty North Kansas City Teachers' Jobs In Jeopardy
#1 Apr 13, 2010
why dont they cut the tenured, union, teachers and give the 1st and 2nd year teachers jobs, I think they could save a lot of money that way!

Good idea but they're dealing with a union so the low on the totem pole must go first. It's very hard to let a senior person go if dealing with a union.

By cutting all of the teachers who have experience you end up with, obviously, the inexperienced teachers who haven't completely honed their skills. We've all seen the success the KCMO district has with their inexperienced educators. Why eliminate the mentors of the new teachers and cause the student to suffer? I think the fact of the matter is that education should be the last item on the list to take a budget cuts. American schools already aren't up to snuff. Cuts can likely be made elsewhere in state budgets...

It is unfortunate that there are so many teachers protected by Union. In my school there are slightly more crummy teachers with tenure over great teachers with tenure. If you pole the parents, the crummy teachers would be gone yesterday - they are angry and bitter. No matter how many calls to the leaders in the school iteself or Central Office, those same teachers return in August. Much to the frustration of most parents. Very frustrating!
