Editorial today calls for raising bar for tenure
Original post made by Times Reader, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Jan 31, 2014
A CA lawsuit has now been filed to fix that much too soon low bar. "If a teacher turns out to be a real problem, that teacher could be fired like the rest of us when we don't perform our jobs well".
Californians value most of our teachers who do a fine job. But, the closing line of this editorial "this suit has merit, and the state will have better schools if it succeeds".
For the sake of our children's education and safety, I hope premature tenure will be corrected.
