At last week's , the Bellmore-Merrick Central High School school board granted tenture to 20 employees.
School principals and department heads spoke of these educators’ achievements and contributions to the district. The list was remarkable.
But some people take issue with granting tenure. What do you think?
Do you understand why the designation exists? Do you believe it's essential to academic rigor and progressive thinking?
Do you think tenure, in general, is granted too easily and is a license for a teacher to be less acountable?
Take our poll and sound off in the comments.
