    This issue boils down to defenders of the status quo (thrown out in California) saying tenure only guarantees due process, which doesn't protect bad teachers from anything but an abusive process, and lets schools fire them without undue difficulty. And attackers of the status quo saying tenure protects bad teachers who can't be fired easily enough, going too far in its excessive protection of good teachers.

    Is tenure merely a guarantee of due process? Or is it a guarantee of bad teachers protected from being fired?
