Unions Broke The School System

The San Diego Union reports that hundreds of teachers from the San Diego Unified School District, millions in debt, must lay off hundreds of teachers, and that a huge majority of those teachers will come from the schools in poor neighborhoods. Unions cause this by insisting on “post and bid” where senior teachers get to choose the plum schools, and those in minority districts get the newbies.
Of course the worst schools have the teachers with the least seniority — and get fired first. Why the civil rights groups are not all over this is because they, and the unions are liberal, and there are “No enemies on the left.”

This “post and bid” means that only the most dedicated senior teacher is teaching in troubled schools, if any of them actually exist. Without senior teachers to act as mentors, newly graduated teachers struggle, and many quit.

The system is badly broken.
