Do right by the kids: Demand quality teachers NYPost 1/9/2012

The Issue: The city and union’s failure to agree on a new teacher-evaluation system for schools.
***
I applaud Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott for telling it like it is: The problem with education in

this city are the teachers and the unions (“Race to the Bottom,” PostOpinion, Jan. 3).

The teachers in the front of the classrooms are the reason our children perform so poorly.

In an effort to do everything possible to hold on to jobs they don’t deserve, teachers ruined the chance

to receive $60 million in federal funding for schools.

This is not rocket science, it’s sheer corruption. Poor-performing teachers equate to low-performing

students. Thanks to Walcott for putting a face on stupidity.
