Tenure laws

A California judge did a good service kids when he declared unconstitutional that state's teacher tenure laws, which virtually prevent classroom instructors from getting fired, no matter how poorly they might perform. The concept of tenure -- granting job permanency to teachers -- first arose decades ago on college campuses, where it was argued that it was needed to allow professors so speak their minds without having to worry about being fired. Today, with all sorts of free-speech guarantees, it's an outmoded concept, and even more so at the elementary and high school level.

Noted and Passed

• So, voters will have to go back to the polls a week from Tuesday, thanks to runoffs for one local race and two state races. While it wasn't inevitable, having three people vie for the Republican nomination for Kershaw County Council chairman certainly increased the chance for a runoff. At one point during election returns, it appeared Julian Burns hit the magic 50.1 percent to avoid a runoff, but voters turned out to be too split between him and challengers Gene Hartis and Ben Connell. Hartis came in second, but decided not to face Burns a second time ...

Summer school work

I was talking with a community member recently who asked me what we do all summer since school is out. Although summer is obviously a time that schools are closed and teachers and assistants are off, the level of activity across the school district is actually pretty intense. Preparing to open school in a district with over 10,000 students and twenty buildings with a comprehensive instructional and extracurricular program is a huge undertaking that actually begins long before the previous school year has ended.
