"I am sick of letting teachers keep their jobs if they are incompetent. We have a "must place" teacher that is so incompetent he doesn't even have a classroom. They keep him in a small room all by himself because the district made our principal take him. We have three teachers that had to take sub status and really wanted job and he took it because he has seniority and we don't fire bad teachers in LAUSD, we just move them around. If we are going to take responsibility we have to allow bad teachers to move on. I know not all teachers are bad, but there are enough "must place"teachers in LAUSD that really bring us down. We should no longer allow people to be a "must place."

"...it wasn't up to [us], the district made [us] take this person."
