The lawsuit was brought by Students Matter and challenged, in part, the eligibility of tenure for teachers, as well as the rules for firing them. It noted how these rules disproportionately affect students in low-income areas.
The California Teachers Association opposed this ruling, claiming that it strips “teachers of their professional rights” and hurts students. They have promised to appeal the decision.
