  1. Why don;t you post a link to the recently released research at AERA that ending seniority based layoffs and placement did nothing to alter teacher qualifications, teacher turnover, or student achievement? Perhaps because it doesn’t fit your ideology????

  3. I take back the part on student achievement–they did not discuss that in the paper, but in the paper presented after that one.
