Bill Gates Listens to the Wrong People

Diane Ravitch, Bridging Differences, Nov 30, 2010
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Amid the rest of this, Diane Ravitch makes an excellent point: tenure is about due process, not jobs-for-life. It's about not being fired simply because you disagree with your boss. It's something people should have a right to expect, if our freedoms are to mean anything, but which has to be written into employment contracts, because in the workplace they don't. (There are some other things Bill Gates gets wrong, but I wanted to highlight this.)
