Dismissing Incompetent Teachers. The Best of ERIC on Educational Management, Number 54.
ERIC Clearinghouse on Educational Management, Eugene, OR.
Eleven publications are reviewed dealing with tenure laws, establishing criteria for teacher evaluation, due process, relevant state laws, legal case studies, remediation, and the principal's role. The literature agrees that dismissal of tenured teachers is possible if evaluation criteria and evidence of incompetence are clear and if administrators adhere strictly to state law and due process in the dismissal proceedings.
