The Governor's view of Teachers

From the Sacramento Bee. Sept. 19,2005.

Dancing with lemons

Schwarzenegger, during a speech seeking support for the teacher tenure initiative, said he'd recently learned about the "dance of the lemons" from educators.
He told the Republican Party state convention's delegates on Saturday that the "dance" refers to the movement of incompetent teachers from "school to school to school" by principals who can't fire the teachers because of tenure.

"I say they shouldn't dance from school to school but dance them right out the door," he said.

Controller Steve Westly, a Democratic gubernatorial candidate, later responded on behalf of teachers, saying "there are more lemons in Sacramento than in our public schools."

This reveals the views of Republicans in private conversations. Re: Prop. 74.
