Strauss: Aren’t California tenure policies in fact unreasonable? Plus 4 more Vergara questions asked and answered

Education News from Washington Post - Thu, 06/19/2014 - 5:02am

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Rolf M. Treu handed down a ruling in Vergara vs California this month tossing out California statutes providing job protections to teachers, siding with plaintiffs who argued that California children who live in low-income families receive an inadequate education because they get weak teachers who can’t be fired. The ruling has been stayed until an appeal can be heard, but there are a lot of questions about the judge’s decisions as well as tenure policies in California. Here are five key issues explained by Kevin Welner, the director of the National Education Policy Center, an attorney and a professor education policy at the University of Colorado Boulder. Last week, Welner wrote a piece about the case trial, titled “A silver lining in the Vergara trial?”

Strauss: From Redskins to Redhawks: Why one Washington high school changed team name after 88 years

Education News from Washington Post - Thu, 06/19/2014 - 4:01am

This week, a Washington state high school whose sports teams were known as the Redskins for 88 years gave final approval for a new logo with the team’s new name: The Redhawks. Why did it make the change? Because it determined that while tradition was important and change is hard, the Redskins name is disparaging and should be “retired with honor and dignity.” The story of this name change at Port Townsend High School in Washington state seems particularly relevant given that on Wednesday, the Redskins professional football team learned that it was losing its trademark protection after the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office ruled that the name is disparaging to Native Americans. This happened once before and the decision was later overturned, but it seems less likely that a Redskins appeal this time would come out successful. The owner of the Redskins, Daniel Snyder, has been resisting calls to change the team name. But some high schools around the country have decided that it is time to give up the Redskins name, including Port Townsend High School. After a parent complained about the Redskins name in 2012, the school formed a committee to conduct a review of the name last year. The panel’s report could in fact be a template for any other teams looking to find their way out of a Redskins controversy, the Peninsula Daily News reported. The Mascot Study Committee Report said in part:
