I found this on Slashdot this week… it’s an article about how hard it is to fire teachers in California. I think that it says a lot about personal responsibility. The article notes that even when commissions found that a school district had reason to terminate teachers, they weren’t allowed to do so. One example reads, “The district wanted to fire a high school teacher who kept a stash of pornography, marijuana and vials with cocaine residue at school, but a commission balked, suggesting that firing was too harsh.” Isn’t marijuana ILLEGAL? And we wonder why some Californians are so screwed up! President Obama had this to say: “I reject a system that rewards failure and protects a person from its consequences.” Bravo. Now let’s see you fire some people who have no business working with children!
