In light of the recent coaching drama at U-M, this article is a good reminder on our missing priorities, where hiring and firing coaches is more important than those entrusted to teach our children.
Anyone who pays attention to local high schools knows that a coach who has several consecutive losing seasons will likely be fired. Well, not really. It is more likely that the losing coach will be sent to teach history or English.
Have you ever heard of a bad history or English teacher who was taken out of the classroom and sent to coach football or basketball? I doubt it. At least not because he was doing a bad job of classroom teaching.
