The people I'm referring to shouldn't have been allowed within 10 miles of a classroom. Teaching is a calling - it's not something you can just phone in.
My mom has been teaching in a private school for the last six years. This year she decided to make the switch to the public schools. Nobody will hire her (well, she hasn't been hired yet) because she "lacks public school experience." Meanwhile the newly graduated chippies to whom I was referring in other post are getting hired right and left because they are a) cheap and b) they student taught for two semesters, which counts as "public school experience." :
