Analysis of Superintendent Survey Responses Regarding Teacher Tenure
Shuls, James V.
eJEP: eJournal of Education Policy, Fall 2014
This paper presents the results of a survey of 192 public school superintendents in Missouri on the topic of teacher tenure. Overall, superintendents indicated the current teacher tenure laws are somewhat onerous, with 73 percent indicating it was "somewhat" or "very difficult" to remove a tenured teacher for their performance in the classroom. Superintendents noted time and paperwork are the biggest obstacles to removing a tenured teacher. Approximately, 92 percent of superintendents indicated they would be supportive of some type of teacher tenure reform.
