Against Tenure

Tenure Rick Hills, over at PrawfsBlawg, makes the argument against tenure as necessary for clearing the deadwood.  He argues that, to protect professors' freedom of expression, tenure should be replaced with a burden-shifting framework: 

[A discharged professor] would proffer something -- anything -- written or said within a year or so of dismissal that could remotely be regarded as controversial[; t]he employer would then bear the burden of showing that the dismissal was unrelated to the proffered writing or utterance.
