After reading of the job cuts in Jordan School District, especially teacher cuts, the thought came to me that maybe they need to think about early retirement for some teachers. As a parent in Jordan School District I have come across a few teachers who seemed too burned out to be of any worth to the children. Also, instead of going to principals for recommendations, ask the parents. They will give you an honest evaluation of a teacher's performance.
It is always hard when teachers have to be cut, but it is worse when the teachers cut are the really good ones. I hope they make well educated decisions, when it comes to laying off teachers.
