Families Sue State to Change Teacher Tenure

Seven families filed a lawsuit in Albany today to end certain teacher job protections in New York State.

The lawsuit challenges tenure, layoffs, and the lengthy teacher firing process. Advocates for education reform say these rules can keep bad teachers in the classroom.

"In the State of New York, we are failing to meet our obligations to our students," said Reshma Singh, the Executive Director of the Partnership for Educational Justice.
