Re: “Proposal coming to end teacher fair dismissal law for all of LR School District

Jim, that was a rhetorical statement, obviously. However, common sense would dictate that nobody wants to get rid of someone who is doing a good job. You've probably only worked for other people, so I'll forgive your lack of business acumen there. Unlike you, Jim, I have a child who attends LRSD every day so I am keenly aware of the fact that many are NOT doing good jobs and have no business teaching kids. Stop being so cranky, it makes you seem elderly. THEBMC1, I never wrote that eliminating the law would solve the problem. If you read my comment as saying that, you obviously went to LRSD and therefore cannot read. Bless your heart.

Re: “Proposal coming to end teacher fair dismissal law for all of LR School District

Here you go, THEBMC1: https://m.arktimes.com/ArkansasBlog/archiv…

This is an article where the same author of the article upon which we are commenting pointed out that "demographics" (i.e., minorities) are the cause of failing schools. It's not the teachers, so they shouldn't be singled out just because they work at failing schools. So now they're not being singled out. Nor are they necessarily going to be fired. They are just going to be treated like normal employees at normal businesses, and I view that as a good thing. Clearly, what we have been doing has not worked. What's your idea?

Nobody buying supplies out of their own pocket, etc. has anything to worry about. To those who miss more days than they work (there have been several during our tenure at LRSD), Johnny's coming for you and good riddance when he does.

Re: “Proposal coming to end teacher fair dismissal law for all of LR School District

So before you were complaining that the waiver of the TFDL was unfair because teachers at failing schools aren't responsible for said failing schools -- minorities somehow are. Now there is a proposal to waive the TFDL in an even handed fashion and you are complaining about that too. No pleasing some people. Perhaps we can fix LRSD by just bitching and moaning, but surely that would have happened already given your Herculean effort.

Re: “Johnny Key touchy about criticism and silent on key issues about teachers and Little Rock

Yes Jim, apples = unions that support Democrats; oranges = unions that support Republicans. AEA is apples, for sure. They are also part the NEA, of which Wikipedia states "From 1989 through the 2014 election cycle, the NEA spent over $92 million on political campaign contributions, 97% of which went to Democrats."

Interesting that in "Another damaging look at Little Rock Police Department," the Washington Post was "singing your song" when author Radley Balko complained:

"When officers have been fired and it takes a lot to get fired they are often able to appeal and win back their jobs, either in court or through the citys Civil Service Commission, usually with the help of the police union."

What's the difference?
