I was looking around to see which states pay more for STEM-type certification and came across Alabama’s TEAMS contract. It says you can earn more pay as a math, science, or computer science teacher. The catch is that you would “relinquish continuing service status.” I guess that’s tenure but another name…. I also see that you sign 3-year contracts so you’d basically give up your tenure in exchange for more money and a longer contract. So, let’s play fantasy and answer this…. Would you give up tenure for this?
