"Most teachers out there are doing an exemplary job," the president of the West Virginia Education Association said, "but let's be clear: Teachers out there and the WVEA want the best in our profession. We don't protect bad teachers, as is portrayed out there. All we protect is due-process rights." Manchin and other state officials say the proposed reforms are not meant to blame teachers but to improve schools.
