Hit The Road Jack

I heard prograndist Bloomberg on the news tonight moaning about teacher layoffs, how everyone with less than five years in will be gone.  He was worried about the message this sends children.  We tell them to work hard and they will accomplish it all and then we fire the "best."

Well, I have questions  for our education mayor.  What kind of message are we sending our children when we work hard, devote our lives to something,  hit the top of the pay scale and are told we are no longer any good?  Why make us get  masters degrees and then hire a person like Black, with no education experience and no higher degree to be our boss?  Why don't you just be honest and tell these kids that it doesn't matter if they work hard or any good at what they do and that once they become too expensive they will be told to hit the road.  Tell them that in the real world all that matters is money.

According to current educational philosophy (or what I've gleaned from it), every child is college bound. So I suppose they'll get enough of an education to figure it out.
