  •  In private school... (4+ / 0-)

    ...without tenure, it does happen. I taught in a private high school where seven of the strongest teachers (two had taught there over 30 years) did not get their contracts renewed over a two year span.

    Even more interesting is the fact that five of the seven were women and seven of the seven were not sports coaches.

    The main things they had in common were not being in the principal's inner circle of coaching buddies and having reputations for academic excellence in their classrooms.
