The Differences between Novice and Experienced Public Middle School Principals in the Decision to Remediate a Tenured Teacher
Reuland, Andrew J.

School principals in Illinois face an ethical dilemma when evaluating tenured teachers. Giving an unsatisfactory rating and placing a tenured teacher under a remediation plan opens the door to a time-consuming process filled with legal and financial issues that will strain relationships in the school. However, giving a less than honest rating results in leaving the teacher in the classroom and not making decisions in the best interest of students. Presented here is a review of current research on evaluating tenured teachers and a framework of ethical lenses that can be applied to a principal's decision-making. This study looks at the differences, if any, that exist between novice and experienced principals when contemplating remediating a tenured teacher.
