Quick Thoughts on the Vergara Appeal Decision

Larry Sand

Not unexpected, the case seemed to go against the plaintiffs in the appeals trial.

Next stop, the state Supreme Court.

Ironic that the decision comes on the heels of a similar case being brought in Minnesota.

I haven’t read the decision yet, but I find it very interesting that the three-judge panel reversed Vergara finding that there wasn’t enough evidence to show that minority students were more often subjected to ineffective teachers than other students. This sounds as if the judges are saying that since everyone is screwed by tenure equally, the civil rights angle goes out the window.
