Teacher Dismissal for Cause
Allison, Brad; Schumacher, Gary; Hammonds, Craig
Journal of Cases in Educational Leadership, v16 n4 p58-67 Dec 2013
This case presents a discussion of events that led to the dismissal of a teacher for cause. A first year high school principal is confronted with teacher behavior that creates a dangerous situation for students. The decision process to determine the appropriate organizational response involves a number of individuals and systems. The administrative recommendation ignores research on decision making and the result is a negative outcome for the school district and the career of the new principal.
