I read this article and was wondering what you all thought. (Hey, GT- perhaps you should apply here - guaranteed openings! LOL!)

PS - I gave my notice last week. I'm free!! Last day = May 31st.

When I heard this my immediate thoughts were chaos and intimidation. How anything would quickly improve with a whole new staff is beyond me. Those fired teachers know the kids and know the problems. Newbies would have to take a while a adjust and there would be no one with experience at the school to guide them,

The state of TN has put our school on probation to be "fresh started" if we can't get our graduation rates up by the end of next year. Since I haven't seen any drastic changes, and I imagine that's what it will take, I guess next year, I'll be looking for a job.
