Grinding My Teeth

I spent a good part of Saturday explaining the difference between being fired and being laid-off to a group of 7th graders. Also tried to explain the organizational "logic" of laying off people who are full-time vs. those who are part-time. That it's all about money and not about merit.

We all came to the consensus that it is not fair, anyway you look at it. Losing one of your favorite teachers due to economics just plain sucks.

I agree with your students. And I like that you're talking to them about stuff like this.
