"1. Elimination of both tenure and the union. There are absolutely no good reasons for teachers to be coddled the way they are. The majority of Americans manage to find and keep jobs by their own wits and skills ... teachers can do the same. Will you sometimes come face to face with a bad boss? Yep. You can do what we do — learn to live with it, or move on. It's not that hard. In the real world, we call that 'adulthood' ... try and enter it sometime.
"2. Vouchers, vouchers and more vouchers. Let the money follow the child. Not only will this force the addled public school systems up and off their couches, it will also change the academic culture of the schools.
"Got all of that? Do your job or move along. Put your customers (the children) first. Listen to your bosses (the parents). Most of all, grow up. We are not asking you to do anything we, the taxpayers, don't do."
Finally, this interesting suggestion from, ahem, Elroy Jetson: "The only solution is cameras in the classroom. Then we all get to see whose version of the story is correct."
