Education Lawsuit Verdict

Hosted by

This morning, an L.A. Superior Court judge ruled in favor of students who sued the state to change the way teachers are dismissed. The case, known as Vergara v. California, has been closely watched in education circles. The lawsuit argues that strong teacher job protections have made it all but impossible to get rid of ineffective educators.
