Tenure Lawsuit Being Considered

KSAL StaffApril 25, 2014

Kansas National Education Association officials say it may consider a lawsuit to determine if the state can take away tenure rights of teachers.

At issue is a provision in a school funding measure signed by Gov. Sam Brownback on Monday. While increasing funding for public education, the measure also reduces the due process rights of teachers if they are fired by a school district.

KNEA officials say that the only recourse may be to challenge the new law in court once a tenured teacher is fired.

Senate Vice President Jeff King says he’s not surprised about potential legal challenges. But he believes the state the funding measure is legally justified.
