Teacher Tenure -- Time for Change.
Escott, Richard H.
In this speech, the author identifies and discusses some misconceptions about tenure, discusses some problems encountered in dismissing tenured teachers, and offers solutions for improving this dismissal process. To improve the dismissal process, the author urges that (1) boards of education consult an attorney when contemplating a tenure decision; (2) the membership of tenure commissions include lawyers; and (3) tenure commissions be given authority to appoint hearing officers to serve local boards of education.
