Why do teachers have employment rights that no one else has?

Tenure should be banned.

Hard to believe Byron said something smart.

Add to that, term limits for politicos.

You can't trust teachers to teach instead of indoctrinate.

If these tenured professors get shown the door, it would be hard to imagine a group of more UNemployable people.
Used to "working" a few hours a week and six months a year.
Making well into six-figure salaries.
Engaging in vicious fighting and arguing about how many angels can dance on the head of a pin, And absolutely clueless about where their salaries have come from all these years.
Good luck!
