Teachers Unions File Suit Over Tenure
Sacramento, CA — A pair of California teachers unions has filed a lawsuit challenging a judge’s recent ruling that calls tenure and job protection “unconstitutional.”
The California Teachers Association and the California Federation of Teachers, which have a combined 400,000 members, filed an appeal yesterday. They argue that the June ruling is “riddled with errors.” The Superior Court Judge ruled that tenure is unlawful and can deprive students of a quality education.
The move comes less than a week after Governor Jerry Brown filed his own appeal to the ruling. It is not immediately clear when the issue will be heard by an appeals court.
