Anti-Union Group Offers Worst Teachers 10G To Quit
An anti-union group in Washington, D.C., is asking for nominations for "The 10 Worst Teachers" in America, so that it can offer them $10,000 each to quit their careers.
The Center for Union Facts hopes that offering severance packages to poorly performing instructors will spark a debate on how hard it is to fire bad teachers, MyFOXDC reports.
The group is spending $1 million on ads and a billboard in New York's Times Square, as well as launching a Web site with data documenting how far it says unions go to protect bad teachers.
Each of the teachers who "wins" the contest will receive a $10,000 severance package if they sign a release agreeing to have their name and the reasons for their selection published by the group, MyFOXDC reports.
Rick Berman, the center's executive director, would not offer specifics on the group’s supporters. more: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,337014,00.html

I wonder why single out bad teachers? Let's offer 10 grand or more to bad doctors, who actually can kill people by their incompetence.
