Important Win for North Carolina Educators
A North Carolina judge has ruled that the state’s repeal of due process protections for teachers was unconstitutional. A law passed last year would have phased out career status for teachers and replaced it with up to four-year long contracts.
North Carolina Association of Educators President Rodney Ellis praised the ruling, saying, “The court said teachers should be protected from politics in the classroom. The administrators and teachers whose depositions were part of this lawsuit gave powerful testimony to the importance of due process and reasonable job protections.”
