Some people say teachers should not receive tenure because once they achieve tenure they receive there money no matter there performance. Teachers should receive tenure because that makes them have job security. So the real question is what outweighs what and make your decision.

You haven't stated at which tier of the educational system you oppose tenure.

You also haven't stated your proposed changes. Do you want to remove tenure entirely or extend the probationary period (which I would agree with)?

Tenure has numerous absolutely critical values to any democratic society:

It provides to teachers the opportunity to teach controversial issues without the risk of dismissal.

It also promotes innovation in the educational process.

Experience over cost.

I accept the challenge, although I'm a little concerned about the 500 character limit attached to each argument (this is my first debate.)
