Are Mass Teacher Firings A New Trend?

March 26, 2010 | Blog

Per this recent Education Optimists post about teacher firings in Central Falls, Rhode Island, word comes that a Georgia high school is also firing its entire staff.

A failing Savannah high school is firing its entire staff in an effort to avoid further sanctions from the state and to make the school eligible for up to $6 million in federal money, officials said Thursday.

The 200 employees at Beach High School — including the principal — will work there through the end of the year but will not be rehired for that school, said Karla Redditte, spokeswoman for the Savannah-Chatham County school district.

    Aside from all the reasons that this approach is stupid and cruel, I keep wondering... where do they plan to find time to interview for 200 jobs?
