Stuff that makes you go... hmmm

From the comments at the Globe & Mail...

"One simple question. Why can't the truly bad teachers be fired? And there are truly bad teachers - why do they have jobs until they retire?"
I'm guessing that most of us had at least one totally unsuitable teacher over the course of our primary, secondary or post-secondary education.

And no... I'm not talking about the hardass from South Africa who threw chalkboard erasers and lifted misbehaving students up by their sideburns.

That sonuvabitch could teach.

I'm talking about the high school history geek who came back from sabbatical after getting his Ph.D... who could be distracted for the entire duration of the class simply by asking questions about his pet obsessions.

Why are there no periodic competency examinations for teachers?
