Schools suck because of unions

Two big name CEOs, Steve Jobs and Michael Dell, team up to bash teachers unions saying that they are the reason that schools are doing poorly. If principals were permitted to fire bad teachers, it would open up space for new teachers who can adequately do the job.

I personally have to deal with this problem every day. I have numerous teachers that I feel should be fired and replaced, but there is nothing that the schools can do to rectify the problem. The worst of these teachers are typically the ones that have been employed by the school for more than twenty years. These teachers most often teach directly out of the book, and have relatively no flexibility in their schedule. These teachers seem to hate their job and seem like the only reason they are there is for the money and are waiting to retire.
