Larry Sand: LA to Pay Teachers to Sit at Home
Los Angeles has made a change to how it will treat teachers under investigation for criminal acts in the classroom or poor job performance. Rather than having to sit around not working in rubber rooms while complaints against them get resolved—which sometimes can take years, during which they collect full pay and benefits—the teachers can now stay at home. To discuss this, Heartland policy advisor Larry Sand joins the podcast. He is the president of the California Teachers Empowerment Network and a retired public school teacher.
