California appeals court upholds teacher job protection laws

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 04/15/2016 - 09:24
A California appeals court sided with unions on Thursday in overturning a lower-court ruling that declared tenure and other job protection laws for public school teachers to be unconstitutional. The decision by a three-judge panel of the state's Second Appellate District dealt a blow to education reform groups that sued on behalf of nine students, saying teacher tenure put poor and minority students at a disproportionately greater risk of being taught by less effective instructors. The June 2014 ruling by a Los Angeles Superior Court judge in a landmark case known as Vergara v. California had already been put on hold pending appeal, keeping teacher tenure and other job protections intact.
