    The right to a public education is usually written into the state constitution. I can’t speak for all states, but in mine, tenure is a contractual term, not a constitutional right. I doubt there will be much legal contention about which is superior. The difficulty will be in establishing that the constitutional right is being denied, and that the contract term causes the denial of the constitutional right.

    Tenure is a relic of a failed system of education and should be ended. No one deserves a job for life.
