the Delta factor

Closing the Teach For America Blogging Gap
Mar 03 2009

research and wondering

a question for your thoughts when you have a moment: why is k-12 teacher tenure automatic (typically after 3 years)? why isn’t it aligned with the higher ed tenure model, which requires a portfolio of high quality work and demonstrated results?

has anyone ever set up k-12 tenure that way?

addendum:

fascinating article by malcolm gladwell on a related topic. check it out.

    has anyone ever set up k-12 tenure that way? No.

    why is k-12 teacher tenure automatic (typically after 3 years)? Different state curricula,the volume of teachers and local control of schools makes the higher ed model pointless.
