Firing teachers is not proven to turn around schools

A veteran education writer is calling the decision to fire all educators at a Rhode Island high school "sad and desperate" and a move that doesn't take into account issues such as poverty, home life and previous education. Valerie Strauss writes in this column that there is no evidence that schools improve if staffers are replaced and that no one reform method has led to across-the-board school improvement.
