Vergara: Teachers are heroic

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 "â¦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?
