Voting for Bad Teachers

A US group called Center for Union Facts has a great ad campaign in the works drawing public attention to how hard it is to fire union-protected, incompetent teachers.

Here's the gimmick: The Center is going to pay the "ten worst union-protected teachers in America" $10,000 apiece to get out of the classroom- for good. It's using newspaper ads to get nominations.

What a brilliant way to raise public awareness.

It reminds me of the kind of ad campaign I used to write, a long time ago, in a political galaxy far, far away.

Gee Gerry. In Canada I suspect that someone who tries a similar contest would get hauled before a human rights commission for "offending" someone.
