Group of New York Parents and Students Files Suit to Eliminate Teacher Tenure

Parents are starting to realize that teachers unions are detrimental to our childrens’ education. And this month a group of students and their parents have filed a lawsuit to tear down union power.

I hope these parents win their lawsuit. Anything that tears down unions is a good thing.

A group of fed-up students and parents on Thursday declared their independence from incompetent New York City teachers shielded by the state’s tenure and seniority laws.

In the wake of a landmark anti-tenure ruling in California, the coalition of 11 students filed a class-action lawsuit in Staten Island state Supreme Court, seeking to eliminate protections afforded to bad teachers.

“This lawsuit has to do with students’ rights and parents’ rights. We have to do away with the ‘students last’ policies. No one is talking about the children who are failing every day,” said Staten Island dad Sam Pirozzolo, a co-leader of the New York City Parents Union.

We need to eliminate these rules that give teachers permanent employment no matter how bad they are at their job.
