Editorial today calls for raising bar for tenure

Original post made by Times Reader, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Jan 31, 2014

Today's 1/31/13 Editorial in our (Pleasanton) BayAreaNewsGroup CCTimes, titled "K-12 teachers need higher bar for tenure". It reads there are good reasons for college level PhDs with proven research and teaching abilities to be given. It goes on to say "California K-12 teachers get tenure--including significant protection from being fired for CAUSE--after about 18 months of service. That's a very low bar indeed for any profession".
