    I agree that you will find people who shouldn't be teaching who take advantage of the job protections that they have.  I also agree that there needs to be an appropriate mechanism that minimizes this as best we can.

    That said, I also found your observation that there's a false dichotomy between teachers advocating for decent working conditions and good educational outcomes for children to be a good one.  The two don't have to be in opposition, but I worry that the view that they are is going to predominate.  And if that's not good for keeping good teachers around, that won't be good for children either.
