California Courts Define a New Way Forward for Teachers

In a victory for nine students who brought a case against the State of California arguing that laws forced districts to provide tenure despite teacher quality, the Vergara Trial ended in June  with a ruling that state laws governing the hiring, firing, and job security of teachers violates the California Constitution.  Teacher tenure, layoffs, and teacher talent will be newly evaluated.  Will the rest of the country follow suit?  What are the means, now, to bring California in line with the requirements of the law?
