Hot Topic: Job Security for Teachers

In the past people would start a job at one company and end up retiring from that company years later. Those days are long gone, but some people's jobs are more secure than others. Teachers seem to get the short end of the stick.

ESL and EFL teachers sign contracts that might only last 6 or 10 months. The lucky ones get 1 or 2 years. There's no guarantee that teachers will get renewed and because of this, teachers have little incentive to be loyal to the school and help it grow.

What do you think?
Should teachers get longer or permanent contracts?  What type of contract do you get at your school?
