Teacher Rights vs. Student Rights Debated in California
LA Times: "A judge’s 2014 ruling in the case, Vergara vs. California, holds that several key job protections for teachers are so harmful to students that they deprive children of their constitutional right to an education."
"These statutes... make it almost impossible to fire a veteran, unionized teacher. The result, he wrote, is that bad teachers remain in the classroom, hurting students, especially black and Latino students and those from low-income families."
What do you think - has protection against arbitrary dismissal gone too far?
