It isn't 'teacher bashing' to want to get rid of bad teachers

"If we care about kids, we have an obligation to get bad teachers out of America’s classrooms," writes Erika Sanzi, a mother of three sons who has taught in public schools in Massachusetts, California, and Rhode Island.
It isn’t teacher bashing or even anti-teacher to want consistently underperforming educators exited and replaced with excellence. 
In fact, removing incompetent practitioners—who either can’t or won’t improve their practice even with support and coaching—not only honors the kids in the seats; it honors the educators whose expertise, talent and devotion to students are undermined by colleagues unwilling to do their part.
