If Only There Were Schools Not Ruled by Tenure and Seniority For Comparison

Alice Mercer:

In the aftermath of the initial Vergara decision, there are lots of questions about effects. Having taught in a public school under a turn-around model, where hiring and being retained, was based solely on the discretion of the site administrator, I think I already have a pretty good idea of what that will look like, and it’s not good for kids or the communities they live in.

We have plenty of similar examples in Rhode Island too. You would think "Actually, we just tried what you are proposing will solve the 'civil rights crisis' and here are the meagre results," would be a pretty good argument, but what do I know about the law.
