Geoffrey Canada: "Some Teachers Can't Teach"

When it comes to school reform, there are plenty of outspoken advocates. And amongst the loudest voices is Geoffrey Canada, whose Harlem Children's Zone (HCZ) is held up by many around the world as a stellar example of how to transform public education.

No matter whether you agree with his methods or if you're skeptical of the HCZ's results, he is always good for a provocative soundbite about the present and the future of education.

The people at the Aspen Ideas Festival knew that and they invited Canada to speak. And he offered up his opinion on bad teachers: If they cannot be fired, they should be relocated to upper middle class schools.

Here's a link to the video snippet of his comments on teachers. The full video is embedded below.
