Should we do away with teacher tenure systems in the US education system
There has to be a hybrid between the two systems, which rewards time & previous success…..that provides accountability….but that doesn’t sacrifice the sanity of teachers. Teachers don’t need to be looking over the shoulders 24/7 to figure out if they are going to have a job the next year–that distracts them from….doing their jobs in the first place. Also, why not make existing regulations work–get local school boards to function with accountability and fairness. You can’t do away with tenure or really modify it substantially until you fix that broken system first or at least concurrently.
