California Superintendent Candidate Says He Would Not Seek Appeal Over Landmark Teacher-Tenure Ruling


The AP (9/26, Leff) reports the challenger in California’s state superintendent election Marshall Tuck said during a speech that he would drop the appeal over California’s “landmark legal decision that struck down teacher-tenure laws.” Tuck said that he supports the ruling as well as the goals of the plaintiffs who brought the initial case to the court system. The article notes that even if the Tuck wins the election, the lawsuit would move forward since he is not named as a defendant on the suit. Tuck also said that if elected, he would convene a group of lawmakers, teachers, and academic experts to revise the statutes challenged by the law.
