TV: "New Girl" Gets Pink Slipped [Teacherpocalypse 2012]
See? It's not just reform stories that get told in popular culture. TV sitcom elementary school teacher Zooy "Jess" Deschanel gets pink slipped on this season of the New Girl, says GOOD's Liz Dwyer. Teacher layoffs, everywhere. (No, not really).
Sure, it's probably going to be presented as a seniority-based situation. Then again, Jess wasn't a very good teacher, far as we could tell, so maybe that's not such a bad thing. It takes more than liking glitter and talking in a whispery voice.
Maybe she'll find a job working at a charter school.
