Last week, CA nonprofit Students Matter won its case against guaranteed teacher tenure; judge ruled five state laws violate students' rights.
"California's teacher tenure laws were declared unconstitutional Tuesday by a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge, ruling on a lawsuit sponsored by Students Matter, a Menlo Park-based nonprofit group founded by Silicon Valley entrepreneur David Welch. Judge Rolf Treu said in a written ruling that five laws governing teacher tenure, dismissal procedures and seniority violate the state constitutional rights to equal treatment and a free public education." -- Julia Cheever, Bay City News via PleasantonWeekly.com
