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.
