So have i, and it's a problem that teachers get lifetime tenure far too quickly in their career and there are a lot of poor teachers on that list, which diminishes the probabilty of having the best teachers employed. Now you can argue on the severity of the problem and it varies from state to state, but it is certainly a problem.
