Sherman, Robert R.
This report reviews the philosophical and practical basis of teacher tenure. The discussion includes tenure both at the elementary, secondary, and higher education levels. General observations are based on the same criticisms of tenure at every educational level. The major areas of study include the present situation, background of tenure, mythology, and alternative plans. A brief summary indicates the desirability of maintaining tenure. A 38-item bibliography is included. (Related document is SP 006 239.) (MJM)
