A court ruling in Los Angeles could have national implications, when it comes to job protections for schoolteachers. A judge ruled that tenure and other protections for teachers are unconstitutional.
Nebraska State Education Association Spokeswoman Karen KilgarIn points out that Nebraska has a common sense tenure law.
Nine students sued in California, saying tenure policies have made it virtually impossible to fire bad teachers.
Kilgarin says that is not the case with Nebraska’s tenure law.
According to the judge, the system in California discriminates against minority and low-income students, by placing ineffective teachers in their schools.
