Thwarting Progress Again

SB 955 would improve the quality of education in CA schools, by allowing schools to retain teachers based on quality, instead of seniority.

Currently, schools must let newer teachers go first, even if they provide higher quality instruction, and produce more student success, than older teachers.

Naturally, the teachers unions will spend a whole lot of money to fight this bill.

My $1.298 - More proof that teachers unions don't give a crap about our children. It reaffirms for me why I refuse to be a union member and annually demand a refund of any dues (which they force me to pay) that would be used for political purposes. If you are a teacher, I strongly urge you to do the same and become an "agency fee payer".
