60. Tenure is the icing on a mediocre cupcake

Last edited Tue Jul 29, 2014, 09:50 PM - Edit history (1)

It's what would-be teachers aspire to. Most know that their job will be mostly thankless, and underpaid for a large part of their career.. Tenure is what makes it endurable. MANY bright young people start out teaching with stars in their eyes, and then burn out and go to other fields for jobs, Tenure is the carrot that keeps many teaching.

Of course, getting rid of tenure, makes it easier to "let go" that teacher who is approaching higher wages.. It allows for a steady stream of newbies who will work for much less...and of course are probably less effective teachers, but rich ladies, whose kids will probably go to private schools for most of their school-going years, and whose parents can easily afford college, know how your kids should be taught...and by whom..
