LIFO in Education

Ranking teachers based on performance would result in better teachers being laid off under LIFO.

I understand why that frustrates an administrator, and the teachers losing their jobs.

There is always someone that will come along and eventually be able to do a particular job better than someone else.

I don't want to see LIFO removed.  What I want to see is a contract that requires a certain level of performance that is acceptable, and as long as that is being achieved by a staff member, they should not fear losing their job because they are out performed.

While unfortunate the best player might be cut, the school will still have a winning team.

*LIFO (Last in first out = most recently hired is first to be fired.)
