why is tully so eager to fire teachers?
Interesting local blog....it's true Mathew Tully does seem set on this idea that a mass firing is the answer and that these supposed "wunderkinds" will magically appear and be successful. For such a clamor for data-based decisions.....we sure haven't seen any data that this is the problem.
indy star columnist matt tully has yet another column up today about how awesome it would be if IPS could fire teachers at whim, without being hampered by pesky union rules. this is at least the third column he's written on this topic in the past month, so clearly this idea is something he's excited about. it's a shame that all these columns are based on faulty assumptions.
