Florida Moves To Deny Tenure To 2 And 4 year College Professors

April 4th, 2011

A bill that would prohibit Florida’s community and state colleges from granting tenure to faculty passed a key legislative committee. New employees as well as those who have not yet earned tenure – including faculty and administrators – would work on annual contracts. House Bill 7193 also requires colleges, when facing layoffs, to let go of their poorest performing employees first. (Orlando Sentinel, 03/29/11)
