Judge Strikes Down Laws Protecting California's Teachers

, The National Law Journal


A state trial judge in Los Angeles has tentatively struck down five California statutes governing how the state’s public school teachers are fired, laid off or granted tenure.

What's being said

  • Disgusted

    Anyone who thinks this lawsuit is about the education of brown and black schoolchildren in California is hopelessly naive. This is simply yet another attack on public sector unions. Anti-union zealots who use brown and black schoolchildren as pawns in their attacks disgust me.

  • ColorBlindJustice

    With teachers unions showing their true character, vowing to appeal and otherwise fighting tooth and nail to defend the costly continued employment of lousy teachers; and with Congress poised to make it easier to get rid of some no-good civil servants at the Veterans Administration, the GOP should gear its congressional campaigns this fall toward wholesale criticism of Big Labor‘s support for the Democrats who routinely choose unions over minority students, veterans and taxpayers.
