Is this the end of teacher tenure in California?

Teacher tenure overruled in CAA Los Angeles Superior Court judge threw out California's teacher tenure laws Tuesday, calling them unconstitutional and declaring in a landmark ruling that public school students and their teachers are cheated by the state's system of hiring and firing instructors.

Judge Rolf Treu said the evidence he heard in Vergara vs. California supported the plaintiffs' contention that firing bad teachers can take "two to almost 10 years and cost $50,000 to $450,000 or more."

Treu called that noteworthy because the number of "grossly ineffective teachers" employed in California ranges from "2,750 to 8,250," or 1 to 3 percent of teachers and that their negative impact on students "shocks the conscience."

He said he heard compelling evidence that the worst teachers cause students to lose more than nine months of education each year, compared with average teachers.
