Vitti snubs professional teachers
During the school board meeting Vitti said he believed most principals would take Teach for America teachers over other applicants. He said it with such confidence that principals would rather have non-education majors with five weeks of training who will only stay for two years over any other applicant. A professional teacher moving to the area, a recent grad with a degree in ed, anybody.
What?!? He is either incredibly out of touch or he is putting the wrong people in charge who are.
The districts main goal should be to put professional educators in our classes or people who will develop into them and Teach for America misses on both. Vitti's main goal seems to be to replace professional teachers with hobbyists.
