54 Worcester Teachers Getting the Axe
It just business as usual in good old Worcester. Cut out where you need it most.
Fifty-four teachers will not have jobs at the end of this school year as was reported in the Worcester Telegram. All were notified this past Wednesday. All non-tenured teachers will be the first to go.
It's time to get rid of the tenure system and start rating these teachers by performance. Tenure, is a joke.
I don't want to knock all tenured teachers here because I'm sure there are many great ones. But the ones that are just riding out the wave and buying their time should be the first that the school committee looks at to cut.
Its time to weed out the garden because it's starting to get choked out.
Our kids are Worcester's future and right now, the future is looking grim.
