Teacher Talk on KUOW at Noon

KUOW's The Conversation will be featuring a segment called "Teacher Seniority versus Skill." That sets the tone right away. Here's the blurb:

When schools lay off teachers, it's last hired, first fired. But should seniority be more important than skill when it comes to the tough choices? We'll hear about a proposed change in state practice. Plus, what makes a great teacher, anyway? Who's the best teacher you ever had? What made them great? Call us and share your stories.

Can we fix our failing schools?

Clearly KUOW needs to be asking better questions. Seniority has so little to do with this problem.
