Teacher tenure is being challenged nationwide with three states abolishing the job protections altogether and others basing tenure decisions on teacher evaluations, according to a recently released report from the Education Commission of the States. In 2011, 10 states reported using the evaluations in tenure decisions, while the number now has spiked to 16. That figure includes Florida, which has linked tenure to results from value-added evaluations, and North Carolina, where the system has faced legal challenges.
