I'm learning very quickly on these forums that the assumptions I've made about tenure and it's role in teachers lives are skewed. A recent thread by Pisces_Fish really showed me a different perspective. My experience is that tenure, once granted, can only be removed under immediate-termination circumstances (child abuse, showing up drunk, things like that). That's apparently not true at all, so if you have a minute could you please share how tenure is handled in your school? Is it contingent on evaluations or performance? How can it be taken away/how can your job be threatened?
