California's Public School Teachers Have Incredible Job Security

Under state law, administrators must compile up to 150 pages documenting problems in addition to a poor-performance evaluation before they can dismiss a teacher. . . .

In the Los Angeles Unified School District, only one or two permanent teachers are dismissed each year, of around 40,000 in the district, said employee relations director Robert Fisher.

In the San Francisco Unified School District, just one teacher out of 4,000 in the district was fired for poor performance during the last three years, said Lorna Ho, special assistant to the superintendent. . . .

Where can I sign up? Of cource, they have to work for a whole year before they earn this level of job security! And people wonder why California's public schools are so bad. What can possibly be so special about public school employees that isn't true for doctors or lawyers or car assembly plants?
