Formal Dismissal Procedures Under Illinois Teacher Tenure Laws.
Jenkins, Newell N.; And Others
This handbook is designed to help Illinois school administrators and school board members achieve fairness and legality in teacher dismissal proceedings. In their discussion, the authors focus entirely on the procedures to be followed once it appears that dismissal is warranted; they make no attempt to define the legitimate causes for dismissal or to deal with the ways in which administrators can compile evidence to support their charges. Frequent references and citations refer to provisions of the School Code of the 1973 Illinois Revised Statutes and to relevant decisions of Illinois and federal courts. Because of this heavy emphasis on Illinois state law, the value of the handbook to school officials in other states will be somewhat limited. (Author/JG)
