Allen, Henry Lee
Thought & Action, v16 n2 p95-110 Fall 2000
Asserts that despite attempts by critics of higher education to use tenure as a scapegoat for a plethora of institutional shortcomings, there is no persuasive evidence that tenured faculty aren't doing their jobs. Describes the need for and benefits of tenure, argues against its critics, and calls for more attention toward creating organizational environments conducive to faculty productivity. (EV)
