Teacher Dismissal for Incompetence.
Robbins, Jerry H.
In the absence of a statutory provision to the contrary, the power to employ teachers and other school officials presupposes the power of dismissal. Proceedings for the dismissal of a teacher are frequently regulated by statute. As a result, the proceedings depend on the wording of the particular statute in force. This paper discusses the status of legislation on teacher dismissal for incompetence according to (1) Mississippi statutory law, (2) statutory law in five other States, (3) major cases that have been in Mississippi courts, (4) the status of the case law on the subject elsewhere, (5) model legislation that has been proposed or recommendations for legislative action proposed by various agencies, and provides (6) recommendations developed on the basis of the material presented in the paper.
