I, like many others, are very disturbed by the recent decision to fire all the teachers at a high school in Rhode Island, and President Obama’s subsequent support of that action.

Instead of writing my own post about it, though, there have been others whom have written about it eloquently and made the same points I would make.

I’d encourage you to read these three posts:

For your information, here’s a New York Times article about the firings that just appeared — School’s Shake-Up Is Embraced by the President.
