Will Tenure Be Taken Away From New Jersey Teachers?

Will Tenure Be Taken Away From New Jersey Teachers?
BY FRANCESCA PHILLIPPY
NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

With the possibility of tenure being taken away from teachers in California, what does this mean for the future of educators in New Jersey?

On June 10th the California Superior Court for the County of Los Angeles rendered California’s teacher tenure and seniority laws in violation of the state’s constitution.

The decision in Vergara v. California ruled that laws which govern teacher tenure, dismissal, and layoffs impose substantial harm to students.

According to Studentsmatter.org, the group responsible for the court case, these laws force administrators to push passionate, inspiring teachers out of the school system and keep grossly ineffective teachers in front of students year after year.

Without tenure and seniority constraints, teaching positions would exist in a purely competitive marketplace.
