My Testimony on the North Dakota Tenure Reform Bill

Excerpt: I noted earlier that the Republican majority leader in the lower chamber of the North Dakota state legislature had introduced a bill that would effectively gut faculty tenure in the state's public universities. The bill has passed the House and is now awaiting a committee hearing in the Senate. HB 1446 has been amended to pull back somewhat on the ambitions of the initial version, but it remains an extraordinary proposal.

I have submitted written testimony in my individual capacity to the North Dakota Senate Education Committee.
