|Where did this apple come from?|
As it stands now, new teachers are usually the first ones asked to perform the less than desirable tasks. Perhaps, it is felt that older teachers have already put in their time as gophers. Perhaps, they don't run as fast anymore. Perhaps they are no longer dependent upon the good will of administrators to receive their tenure. They've worked their way up; they've earned a little more status. Without tenure, career teachers have earned nothing. They may be constantly "under the gun," under the beck and call of supervisors.
Suppose a teacher blows the whistle on violations of federal law governing services provided to students, administrative abuse of funds or something else. Without tenure, teachers will have far fewer protections. I'm guessing rather than suffer through a long process of seeking redress, most teachers will look the other way and shut up. Who suffers then?
