    the mechanics of it involve firing all the teachers and then hiring some of them back. If the new school is a charter, as it is slated to be here, the teachers who go to the charter will have a new employer, potentially with consequences to their seniority rights and their pensions.

    It's not a small thing, actually, because it means in some cases the opposite of what you might expect will happen - some of the strongest teachers will elect to be reassigned to other schools in the district rather than stay, creating more disruption at the original school and propagating that disruption through the district.
