The cover story of Time magazine this week looks at the “latest batch of tech tycoons turned education reformers” who are behind the Vergara v. California lawsuit. The ruling in that case struck down California’s laws on teacher tenure and other teacher job protections.
In the Fall 2014 issue of Education Next, legal affairs columnists Josh Dunn and Martha Derthick wrote about the Vergara case. They argued against using litigation to achieve teacher tenure reform.
Ed Next’s Paul Peterson defended the lawsuit.
