The Hidden Costs of Tenure

This is a reminder to readers to visit the website The Hidden Costs of Tenure. Scott Reader and the Small Newspaper Group did an excellent job of exposing the problems of tenure in our K - 12 system. It would be great to see a book by Mr. Reeder. Newspapers across America should do thorough investigative reporting of our public schools just as the Small Newspaper Group.

The article titles include but are not limited to the following titles.

Tenure frustrates drive for teacher accountability

School boards lose power to fire poor teachers

Student pregnant, DNA points to assistant principal; no firing

Impact of poor teachers cripples students for years

Teacher unions' clout keeps tenure strong

Schools resort to secret buyouts to get rid of teachers
