    Whoa. I'm not amused. He could have at least kept his ideas to himself. Scary when Dell is the one who comes off as the good guy.

    Especially not brilliant when supposedly Apple gets a lot of it's business from education.

    Probably wasn't the best time to do it, but what he said is true.

    Well, I agree with Jobs. Teachers should be held accountable. Why are they exempt?

    And Dell as the "good" guy? He just said what they wanted to hear. :rolleyes:

    I agree with Jobs. Bad teachers should be removed, and I applaud him for telling it like it is. Right now it is practically impossible to remove ineffective teachers from the payrolls.

    I agree with Jobs. (Not just because he's jobs). You should have to actually perform to maintain your position, it shouldn't be assumed becuase you have something like tenure.

    Trying to blame horribly underpaid and undersupported and overworked teachers for the problems of schools is nuts.

    There's a difference between not being able to perform at your best because you lack the resources and not being able to perform at all because you're just bad at teaching, no?
