NC Teachers Group Seeks New Fight Over Law Changes

Public school teachers are promising action against a new North Carolina law that eliminates job protections toward paying teachers based on job performance.

 

The North Carolina Association of Educators on Tuesday plans to discuss action against the General Assembly approving an end to teacher tenure.

 

The law starts a five-year process after which teachers will work under contracts. That replaces tenure rights that require school administrators to follow a defined process when firing a teacher.

 

The law ending tenure rights is one of a series of legislative changes that pushed teachers to sign petitions, plan walk-outs and prepare lawsuits. Public school advocates last week sued the state to block a law that would let taxpayer money be used by low-income students wishing to attend private or religious schools.
