    While I’m sympathetic to the argument that research is overvalued in relation to teaching, Ms. Shafer-Riley simply assumes that this is attributable to tenure without explaining the connection. If tenure were abolished, I don’t see why that would automatically shift the balance between research and teaching in the ongoing criteria for retention.
