Question: What Are a Teacher’s Rights Under Tenure?
Answer: While tenure rights vary from location to location, even within the same state, typically teachers are given due process to fight any dismissal actions. What this means is that a school district will typically hold a hearing where evidence is presented by both the administration and the teacher in question. It is up to the administration to prove that the teacher is guilty and deserves dismissal for actions directly related to their job performance standards. This can prove to be a very time consuming process.
