Sen. Cunningham’s bill would require teachers to work for ten years, instead of five, to get tenure.
Many of Missouri’s public school teachers would need to work longer before getting tenure under legislation endorsed by the state Senate.
The vote to maintain Missouri’s current tenure system comes one day after the Senate punted on an attempt to address the unaccredited school district in St. Louis.
The main portion of the bill is focused on dealing with the unaccredited metropolitan districts in St. Louis and Kansas City, but some think the changes would affect schools throughout Missouri.
“I would argue that the bill may, in fact, help students in St. Louis and in Kansas City, but it is broadsweeping throughout the state.”
