New Jersey’s tenure law, TEACHNJ, was enacted in 2012, intended to provide a dramatic reduction in the time and cost of removing teachers who were repeatedly ineffective in improving student outcomes.  Has it done so?  What is the process, under TEACHNJ, for bringing tenure charges of inefficiency or unbecoming conduct against poorly-performing teachers, and what successes and surprises have boards of education and administrators seen since the law’s adoption?  Please join NJSBA’s Ray Pinney as he discusses legal issues in tenure cases with Brenda Liss, a partner with the law firm of Riker, Danzig, Scherer, Hyland & Perretti LLP.
