-- JOY BACH, Kennewick
I know a lot of great public school teachers. And then there are the others ... Teachers who need to be let go. My own family has had experiences with some of those. One that comes to mind is a teacher who laid on the floor behind his desk and went to sleep during class time. Regularly. When I complained to the principal, I was told he had tenure and could not be fired. They knew he was sleeping. And so I say "Yes. Let's have charter schools with teachers who have to be accountable. And the great teachers can rise to the top."
