New Law For Michigan Teachers


LANSING, Mich. — Changes to the state’s teacher tenure system that supporters say will make it easier to remove ineffective teachers from the classroom has been signed into law by Gov. Rick Snyder.

Supporters say the legislation signed Tuesday makes teacher performance rather than seniority the key factor in awarding tenure and deciding layoffs within a district.

Democrats say the proposals are part of a continued legislative attack on teachers and union rights and won’t improve the state’s schools.

Snyder Says Teacher Tenure Must Be Tougher To Achieve

New standards for evaluating teachers and administrators are to be drawn up by a still-to-be-appointed commission and put in place by September 2012.

Republican lawmakers are working on additional legislation that would require many teachers and other public employees to pay a larger share of their own health insurance costs.
