    There’s more to this than firing bad teachers. Removing tenure for ALL teachers to remove the “bad” 1% doesn’t make sense. This is a smoke and mirrors game that’s being played on the public. The end goal is to reduce retirement obligations from the state. How do you do that? Remove due process, then you can fire any teacher when they get close to retirement or become too expensive.
