Bad teachers fired in Rhode Island

A Rhode Island school district voted 5-2 to fire all the teachers at one low-income school after years of repeated failure. The school district wanted teachers to spend more time with students, and the teacher union demanded an extra $90 an hour for their teachers - on top of the more than $70,000 a year the average teacher in the district earns.

Bad teachers have to go, and it's good to see some school district leaders standing up for students.
