Well it is a good idea IF you aren't learning anything but I think teens think teachers are bad for all kinds of reasons. So this is saying to me that just because there is one thing wrong with a teacher they may no longer have a job. Isn't unemployment an issue in the country. My dad is a high school teacher and he isn't the favorite of many but he can help better than any other teacher.

I am a fan of tenure. My dad is a teacher and he has tenure. He is an excellent teacher. Although tenure can keep bad teachers employed, it is more beneficial than negative. Tenure was originally introduced as a way to protect professors from being fired for political reasons. My dad is a biology teacher and teaches evolution. Without tenure, a creationist superintendent could fire him in favor of a teacher that would teach creationism. (Where I live, it is legal to teach creation myths in the science classroom.)
Tenure protects teachers and also makes more people teach. Teachers do not get paid a lot, but the job security makes it an equal trade-off. Without tenure teachers would not make much and have poor job security. Less people would aspire to teach.

I think that's sorta the point... remember, the article is on BAD teachers?

That's the point, they are stressing that the teacher in the picture is a bad teacher.
