Minnesota’s 2014 teacher of the year is losing his job amid a legislative debate over school funding and job protections for veteran teachers.
Tom Rademacher on his personal blog Sunday criticized the so-called “Last In, First Out” (LIFO) policies that Republican lawmakers for years have tried to eliminate.
“We are doing no one, certainly not students and teachers, any favors by making new teachers start over and over and over again,” he said.
But Rademacher said the larger problem is a lack of funding for schools.
