Duval County has needlessly been firing teachers
Last night by emergency order the district waived the June 30th deadline for letting teachers go due to certification issues/teaching out of field.
I confess I was ignorant, I didn't realize this was an arbitrary deadline that the district created and to be honest I am all for the district keeping teachers rather than firing them for not meeting some made up deadline.
Two things though how many hundreds of teachers have been needlessly let go over the years and didn't the district just say they were having no trouble filling teacher positions, well if so why the emergency order?
Then finally the conspiracy theorist in me wonders if this is to benefit Teach for America because the truth is the vast majority of them are on temporary not professional certificates.
Check out the emergency agenda items.
