Debate over ‘teacher tenure’ continues

The ongoing debate over the pro’s and con’s of tenured teachers continues in the State Legislature.

tenureCon: “Republican state Senator Wayne Kuipers has wanted to reform teacher tenure for awhile now….He says most of Michigan’s teachers are good, effective educators. But he says there are always a few who need to go.”  IPR

Pro: “The unions say the Legislature unfairly beats up on teachers, and doesn’t deal with the real problems in schools, such as funding.”  IPR
