What’s the solution?

 Julia Steiny wrote a piece in GoLocalProv today making the case against the use of teacher seniority in pretty much any school situations.

I am no great lover of seniority. The school I work in was forced to make some layoffs last year, and a teacher recognized by most students as one of the best teachers in the whole school had to leave because she was one of the newest teachers. Anyone who would argue this is a perfect system has an imperfect understanding of our schools.

But I want to know what the alternative solution is!
