Tenure of Service of Teachers

by Isaac L. Kandel - 1924

The elements that enter into efficient teaching service have never been clearly analyzed. In a vague sort of way it is assumed that the payment of good salaries and the establishment of pensions play an important part in promoting efficiency, and much has been done in recent years to improve conditions in these respects. But apart from these material and objective bases, little consideration has been given to the effect of other factors which conduce to contentment and freedom from anxiety without which good service cannot be given. Beneficial results are expected to flow from good preparation for the profession of teaching, from professional cooperation, and from sound supervision; with considerable justice much attention has been given to these elements in promoting efficiency. The same statement cannot be made with reference to the tenure of service of teachers, an element that plays no inconsiderable part in the decisions of those who are about to choose their life careers, and that constitutes an ever-present cause of anxiety for those who elect the teaching profession.
