"Veteran Teachers who Police Their Own"

If you missed in on Monday evening, check out Caucus Member and Robeson High School Teacher Andrew Saltz's recent interview on WHYY's Newsworks.

Instead of attacking seniority, they wish the district would place greater focus on building a culture of accountability in schools. They say: trust teachers to be professionals, build a leadership culture that helps improve the performance of all, provide the necessary resources, and fire those who prove that they cannot perform the job.

Hear the full extended interview -- complete with the story of what happened when Saltz and his colleagues had to deal with an unsatisfactory teacher in their building -- on the Newsworks website.
