Reject the “reforminess” of corporate ed reform yet know that there are teachers who are not suited to the profession? Smoking Toward Jersey looks at the NJEA’s proposal to add a year to the tenure review process & put in place an expedited arbitration process. The difference here is that these are union-generated policies that help the profession better establish high standards & at the same time protect due process. Thoughts on this proposal?
