Activists take teacher tenure battle to more states
from U.S. News & World Report
Parents, students and legislators are challenging teacher tenure laws in an increasing number of states, as the influence of a landmark decision in California begins to ripple throughout the country. Groups are turning their attention to filing copycat lawsuits after the Vergara v. California ruling reignited tenure debates in states including New York, Connecticut and New Jersey. "This is unprecedented," says William Koski, a professor of education and law at Stanford University. "It is relatively unusual for courts to get involved in the nitty-gritty of any educational policies, much less teacher employment rules like this."
