Awesome: Judge Rules Teacher Tenure Rules Are Unconstitutional
The two main things holding our education system back are unions and tenure, with any luck we’re down to just unions (unfortunately they aren’t going away any time soon).
[Ed; did somebody say Unions?]

A judge in Los Angeles ruled Tuesday that public school teacher tenure rules are unconstitutional, a stunning reversal that could pave the way for broad changes to public education monopolies all over the country.In a case brought by nine students in the Los Angeles Unified School District, L.A. County Superior Court Judge Rolf M. Treu ruled that “both students and teachers are unfairly, unnecessarily, and for no legally cognizable reason (let alone a compelling one), disadvantaged by the current Permanent Employment Statute.”The case, Vergara v. California, argued that by blocking the firing of bad teachers, tenure denied L.A. students their constitutional right to a quality education. The suit was organized by the Silicon Valley reform group Students Matter on behalf of 10th grader Beatriz Vergara and eight other students. The defendants included Governor Jerry Brown, Superintendent of Public Education Tom Torlakson, and the behemoth teacher unions California Teachers Association (CTA) and the California Federation of Teachers (CFT). The defendants tried three times to dismiss the suit.
Thank You NRO and Zip.
If this ruling is upheld and grows legs, just think of what it will mean to the 'Mental Health' Industry.
'Mental Health' is Academia on a tear. One Theory after another, and with Tenure being the law of the land, no matter What crock they cook up to sell brain damage, Violations of all Manner of laws, a near Complete reversal of the Civil Rights movement's struggles, . . . America has to just keep paying them.
Make them Produce a Cure (which they can't) or Fire them.
