Or places like Omaha (I believe) and Huntsville Alabama where the district RIF's ALL the teachers under the guise of LOW PERFORMANCE on standardized tests or the teachers refusal to accept merit pay in lieu of steps / COLA.
TFA seems to be a anti teaching cult more focused on stripping teachers of rights and salary.
