    Teachers are government employees.

    If there was no tenure, whoever wins an election could fire good teachers and hire cronies.  They could also make teachers' jobs conditional on political support.

    If you think Tenure sucks, wait until your kid's teacher is hired by Boss Tweed!

    I do not believe that there are tons of "bad teachers' that need to be fired. They just need an incentive to be better. Your principal needs to have a talk with this teacher. But, since you are trapped in your school, the principal has no reason to rock the boat.

    If a charter school opened across the street, you could threaten to leave. Then you would get more attention.
