Five Misconceptions about Tenure.
Benjamin, Ernst
Trusteeship, v3 n1 p16-21 Jan-Feb 1995
This article addresses five misconceptions relating to academic tenure, arguing against the notions that tenure is no longer necessary for the defense of academic freedom; is simply job security and exchangeable for other benefits; diminishes academic quality; is no longer feasible because of the elimination of mandatory retirement; and is a principal source of institutional inflexibility.
