Rights of Teachers and Students: Can a Judge Find Balance?

Hosted by

The fight over education reform went to court today in Los Angeles. State laws, backed by teachers' unions, are accused of violating the State Constitution — by depriving kids of the right to a good education — especially poor and minority children. Students Matter, a nonprofit backed by a Silicon Valley millionaire, has sued the state, including the Governor and the Superintendent of Public Instruction.
