You're absolutely right, Liz! I have seen how the tenure system can work in
a positive manner, but I have also seen too many teachers who were not
qualified, uncaring, etc. who were simply waiting for retirement - and
nothing could be done because 'they have tenure.' What a shame, and the
kids are the ones suffering because of it. There must be a happy medium
