LOS ANGELES — The landmark court decision on Tuesday finding
California’s teacher tenure laws unconstitutional is likely to lead to a
flood of copycat lawsuits in other states, shifting the battleground on
the issue from the legislatures to the courts.
“Almost nothing the plaintiffs raised is unique to California,” said
Timothy Daly, the executive director of the New Teacher Project, which
has for years pressed for revamping the way teachers are hired and
fired, pushing away from tenure rules that give teachers a job for life
after only a few years of proving themselves.
