FORT COLLINS - A judge will decide next week whether the Thompson School District can change its policies regarding the Thompson Education Association before the conclusion of a lawsuit that could force another vote on a failed teacher contract.
LOS ANGELES—A California judge declared the state's strong teacher-tenure laws unconstitutional in a rebuke that promises to spur similar challenges around the country. The student plaintiffs in the lawsuit against the state and two teachers unions successfully argued that statutes protecting teacher tenure, dismissal procedures and "last-in, first-out" layoff policies serve more often to keep ineffective instructors in the schools—hurting students' chances to succeed. In Tuesday's decision in Vergara v. California, Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Rolf M. Treu cited the Supreme Court's 1954 Brown v. Board of Education "separate but equal" ruling, writing that the laws in this case "impose a real and appreciable impact on the students' fundamental right to equality of education."
The team at the top may be the most difficult to manage and lead. Rivalries, strong personalities and different notions of the future make it a tough job indeed. But if the teams are structured right, they can be of immense value to the company.
I hold these truths to be self-evident. All children have educational rights according to the Colorado constitution. To secure those rights, school boards were created deriving their powers from the people. Whenever any school board becomes destructive, it is the right of the people to alter or abolish it and institute a new school board. When a long train of abuses have been demonstrated to impede the education of the community’s children, it is our duty to hold the school board accountable and to elect new school board members for the future education of the children. The history of the present school board is a history of repeated fiscal irresponsibility and educational policy failures. To prove this, let facts be submitted.
Thompson School District has named Dr. Daniel Maas as Chief Operations Officer, effective July 1. This is a new position within the district that is designed to create more efficiency; many of the duties that Dr. Maas will be inheriting were performed by assistant superintendent Michael Jones, who is departing the district at the end of the month. As Chief Operations Officer, Maas will oversee district facilities/maintenance, custodial operations, transportation, planning, security and Instructional Support/Technology Services (ISTS).
When you hear MTV, you don’t think “research.” But, for the last few years, the music television channel has been building a public affairs campaign to address bias called “Look Different.” Aimed at millennials, it seeks to help them deal with prejudice and discrimination in their lives. And as part of the project, MTV has worked with pollsters to survey a nationally representative sample of people ages 14 to 24 to measure how young people are “experiencing, affected by, and responding to issues associated with bias.”
