LEGISLATIVE ATTACK ON PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHERS' LABOR RIGHTS
HOUSE PASSES BILL UNDERMINING PUBLIC SCHOOL TEACHERS AFTER AGGRESSIVE SINQUEFIELD AND STUDENTS FIRST LOBBYING EFFORT. The House has given initial approval to a very stripped down bill dealing with teacher layoffs. Language dealing with teacher tenure was stripped out of the proposal. What remains is a change to what is often called "last in, first out." The proposed new policy would require administrators to decide what teachers to cut based first on performance, as well as training and certification, but not on salaries or seniority.
