Democrats and Teacher Tenure

via Democrats and Teacher Tenure – Mona Charen – National Review Online.

“Do you have life tenure in your job? Unless you are one of the above-mentioned professors, a federal judge, or a public-school teacher, the answer is almost certainly no. So why do teachers have it? Whose interests does it serve other than the teachers’? It permits sloth and incompetence. Can you keep your job without reference to how well you perform it? Tenure insulates teachers from accountability”

It’s about the teachers, not the students.
