Tenure should be eliminated.In practically every other job, you must always prove yourself.If your work becomes sub-par,then you lose it.I understand the desire for job security,but people need to face reality.Job security should NOT exist.If someone knows they can't get fired,why would they not start slacking off? There are people who, despite knowing it could get them fired, still slack off at work, sitting at their desks chatting with their friends or playing online games or playing with their facebook. Imagine if these people couldn't be fired.
