Killing Tenure

From Inside Higher Ed:

Lawmakers in two states this week introduced legislation that would eliminate tenure for public college and university professors.

Legislation in Iowa would end tenure even for those who already have it.
The bills, along with the recent gutting of tenure in Wisconsin and other events, have some worrying about a trend...
