California Teachers Unions Will Keep Their Tenure
The California Supreme Court stood with teachers unions by refusing to review a tenure case.By Lindsay Gloor | August 22, 2016
Teachers unions in California had a reason to celebrate Monday when the state's highest court refused to review a case that threatened their traditional job protections.
The suit, filed by a Silicon Valley-based group called Students Matter, claimed California's teacher tenure laws take effect too early. Teachers in California are officially tenured after two years of teaching — and the group says that's giving teachers job protection before they've actually earned it.
