Because we really need an easier way to fire teachers:
Republicans in the North Carolina Senate are rolling out a package of public school initiatives they say would create performance bonuses for teachers but end their employment tenure so that districts could more easily dismiss ineffective ones.
I'm going to award a blue star (I don't have any blue stars) to the first reader who can tie this "package" to ALEC's cookie-cutter legislation.
