re: Grading Higher Education: Beware Pitfalls
I used to agree with you about the tenure system...but recently I've been rethinking it. This is from a K-12 perspective, where I know teachers who have been taken out of the classroom for speaking their mind about what is good for kids and others who say they couldn't teach in the way they know benefits their kids without the assurance of tenure. With the current state of what K-12 teachers are being demanded to do in the classroom, I'm less sure about this now than I used to be.
Are there other ways to ensure academic freedom and teacher professionalism?
