As you may already know, the cover story for the November, 3rd issue of Time Magazine is titled, “The War on Teacher Tenure.” This article, along with the accompanying cover photo, are both misleading and sensational. More importantly, the story itself didn’t feature the voice of a single educator!
If the author of this article had asked a teacher, she would’ve learned that due process policies like tenure are still very much needed to protect good teachers from being fired for bad reasons.
