Teachers are so important. We need to have very good teachers to help us learn and be competitive so we can get a good job someday.

Tenure is a GREAT thing, if it goes to the right person. Here's the thing guys, schools don't want tenure anymore because that means they have to pay that teacher more money (since they have been teaching a long time). By getting rid of tenure, schools can hire "cheap" teachers (fresh out of college) and fire "expensive" (experienced) teachers. I do not like knowing that now that my mom doesn't have tenure, she can be fired for being too expensive to pay. Tenure is very important!

That's a really good idea! My Spanish teacher didn't teach me anything, she literally gave us coloring sheets and sent us on our way. So now that I'm in highschool, I'm failing spanish because my old teacher taught us nothing.

I think it's a good thing, but the students should agree if they're going to fire a teacher. i mean, they're the ones being taught! geez PLEASE get rid of my spanish teacher!

Tenure is okay, but I do agree that it can be bad. I think it should only be given to teachers who have been supervised, are liked by a lot of the kids, and just overall really good with educating kids. If a teacher is just given tenure and isn't that good, I think that's a problem. But if the teacher is supervised and has really been thought over about giving them tenure, I think it would be perfectly fine.

I am not a fan of tenure if it is just given, not rewarded. I HAVE a bad teacher and though I know he tries and means well,he just recieved tenure this year so no matter how my classmates plea we can't get rid of him. I think there should be programs to help teachers improve and recognize the teachers that don't work. I also believe Michelle Rhee was on to something when she suggested that Washington D.C. teachers instead of recieve tenure recieve a pay of $150,000. It was quickly shut down. Schools are for the students and though teachers are important, what schools were created for is for the benefit of the students. I could really talk forever about education and teachers and students.

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?
by lauren330 on 11/1/2012 12:42:15 PM
That's the point, they are stressing that the teacher in the picture is a bad teacher.
