Alabama Education Association District 28 UniServe director Jocelyn Schilling said “That scares me a little bit,” about the fact that charter schools aren’t required to offer their teachers tenure.
Later in the North Jefferson News article Schilling said that schools in north Jefferson County all perform at a high level.
“‘Communities are happy with the work the schools are doing,’ she said. ‘It doesn’t make sense to spend that money elsewhere.'”
What scares me more than a little bit is the fact that Schilling cited a county that’s earned 5 out of 10 stars on greatschools.com as a school district that communities are happy with. When I was going through Alabama’s public education system, 50% was a failing grade.
