A week ago, a court in California ruled that state's tenure laws – which require public school districts to grant tenure to teachers after just two years – violated the principles of equal protection. But it's too hard to fire a terrible teacher in California if the teacher is tenured, the court reasoned, and since terrible teachers tend to be concentrated in poor and minority communities, those students' civil rights are being violated. Thinking about my own teaching career, I know my first year was awful, my second was bad, and it took until my fourth or fifth year until I really had my stuff together. Research tells us that most teachers steadily improve over the first four or five years of their career before generally – but not always – plateauing. One of my favorite things to do as a veteran teacher is work with student teachers or other pre-service education majors. It's really true that novice teachers haven't mastered the kind of plate-spinning a teacher has to do in the classroom or the art of short- and long-term curriculum planning. By scripting classes according to strict pacing guides, or by sitting kids in front of computers for hours at a stretch, "reformers" don't let new teachers develop the planning and management skills they need.
Except for the flouring of sawdust that covers everything in Mike Bellino 's workshop here, the place looks more like a used sporting goods store than a furniture factory. As alluring as these skis are, Mr. Bellino hasn't spent a fortune to amass 100,000 of them, most of which he stores in four garages until partner Ken Moreau turns them into something worthy of Norm Abram – Adirondack chairs. "The concept of free skis – it's just fantastic," says Bellino, founder of Skichair. Bellino gets skis and snowboards free for the same reason that tons show up in landfills: There's no market for them. Moreau notes, "The technology of the ski industry changes so quickly that a ski that's three years old is obsolete. The idea of skis being thrown away like Q-tips detracts from the industry's high-profile efforts to go green. Resorts are doing everything from putting solar panels on chalet roofs to reducing food waste at cafeterias. SnowSports Industries America (SIA), a trade group, is exploring prospects for melting old skis and recycling polymers into, say, decking for ski lodges. The hope is to do something useful with the five to seven pairs of skis that, the SIA estimates, collect dust in the garage of the typical person who's skied for 20 years. "We were looking at different ways to repurpose" used skis, says Greg Schneider , an SIA.
