Re "Judge rejects state laws on teacher tenure, firing" (Page A1, June 11): Page A1: Judge Rolf Treu decides the California tenure and dismissal rules allow "…a significant number of grossly ineffective teachers currently in California classrooms." Hooray! Now we can finally get rid of all those bad teachers.

Cut to page A13: Another student with a gun goes on a rampage, killing one student and injuring teacher Todd Rispler, who risks his life to initiate the school's lock-down protocols. Other teachers are calming and directing panicked students during the lock-down.

Question: How many StudentsFirst politicians, including Marshall Tuck and Michelle Rhee, would put their lives on the line for students like all those bad teachers?
