“There’s no reason for tenure,” said Rep. Allan Rothlisberg, R-Grandview Plaza. “The years I spent in the military, if you didn’t produce, if you didn’t meet standards, you were gone. There is no reason to have any protected class in this state or in this country.”

“Due process for teachers is not job protection,” responded Sen. Pat Pettey, a Democrat from Kansas City, Kan., and a retired teacher. “It provides security for teachers to hold students to high standards.”

Just to emphasize:  Democrats in the pockets of the Teachers Unions call it “due process,” but it’s still tenure, meaning that it’s nearly impossible to fire a teacher, no matter how godawful they are.

As for teachers holding students to high standards, choke on this one:

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
