In a case likely to reverberate across the country, a California judge struck down the state's teacher tenure laws last week on civil rights grounds, saying tenure protects educators at the expense of poor and minority students who are most likely to be stuck with weak teachers. Some advocates for education reform applaud the ruling, but teachers' unions say tenure is important to recruiting and keeping good teachers and dispute the notion that tenure makes it harder to improve public school performance.
