Baldwin School Supt. Challenges Teacher Tenure Law

Alabama teachers who have at least three years experience are protected under the Teacher Tenure Act. That means teachers can’t be fired without cause even if they’re deemed ineffective or substandard employees.

Baldwin County School Supt. Dr. Alan Lee says Alabama’s Teacher Tenure law is too liberal, too time consuming and too expensive. Lee wants state lawmakers to consider re-vamping the tenure law.
