This idea is picking up momentum in the popular culture.....question is.....is that what we want for our profession?  Or do we want to change the conversation to our own ways of reforming?

Pitts: 25 percent teacher rule is an insult
Fayetteville Observer

Teacher Tenure Ends in North Carolina, Joining Other States

Teacher Tenure Ends in North Carolina, Joining Other States | Alaska Legislature Tenure of Teachers | Scoop.it

"A number of states are ending or greatly restricting teacher tenure, with North Carolina becoming the latest to overhaul its tenure rules. North Carolina has become the latest state to overhaul its teacher tenure rules, directing school administrators to offer four-year contracts to top performers but one- or two-year contracts to everybody else. In 2011, Idaho’s legislature was the first to explicitly state that “No new employment contract between a school district and certificated employee shall result in the vesting of tenure, continued expectations of employment or property rights in an employment relationship,” according to the Education Commission of the States. In a 2010 survey, ECS found that Colorado, New Mexico and Florida have eliminated the term 'tenure', while other states have repealed tenure or streamlined the due process procedures. Opponents fear the new rules will promote rapid teacher turnover. 'It’s going to create a revolving door for public educators in North Carolina,' said Rodney Ellis, president of the North Carolina Association of Educators." | via Stateline
