RIGHTS and FREEDOMS
PART. II. PUBLIC SCHOOLS
Section. 4. Any teacher, principal, commissioner or contractor may be terminated by a majority vote of the teachers and parents and students of the school:
Second rate, hapless, careless, poorly performing personnel at all levels will be discovered and fired. The power in education today lies with bureaucratic overlords who put their self interests above that of the students and teachers, and have somehow managed to keep the parents in a subservient position when it’s the parents who are paying for everything! The Valentine Constitution instead puts the power in the hands of the teachers, students and parents, and shifts the focus from bureaucracy back to education.
… teachers will be paid no less than double the minimum wage (of $20/hr):
The Valentine Constitution recognizes teaching as one of the most important jobs in our society, since these caring, dedicated professionals teach our children the values and behavior necessary for a productive, well adjusted Citizenry. We must pay a decent wage to ensure that we have plenty of quality teachers educating our children. Teachers now typically use one of their paychecks to set up their classrooms at the beginning of each year and another for supplies during the year! These are selfless people who love our children, and should be adequately compensated for their engrossing, patient, heartfelt work.
