Tenure of Service of Teachers (Continued)

by Isaac L. Kandel - 1924

With few exceptions, noted in other parts of this Report, teachers throughout the country are appointed on annual contracts. During this brief tenure they are subject to dismissal by the appointing boards of education for incompetence, misconduct in office, unprofessional conduct or conduct unbecoming a teacher, insubordination, neglect of duty, failure to comply with regulations, causes that render a teacher's service unprofitable, the best interests of the school, immorality, and any cause deemed sufficient. Although a wide latitude is thus afforded to employing authorities, the tendency on the whole is not to dismiss a teacher during the year of tenure except for immorality or gross misconduct. It is apparently safer and creates less friction to drop a teacher on the expiration of an annual contract. In such cases, of course, the teacher has no redress.
