Arizona House goes after teacher job security

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (AP) -

 

Teachers would have less time to save their jobs after being reprimanded under a measure backed by the Arizona House of Representatives.

In a 50-7 vote, the House advanced legislation Thursday that would reduce the time a teacher has to improve after being notified that their performance is inadequate.

Under the measure sent to the Senate for approval, teachers would have 45 instructional days to prove they are good educators and save their jobs. Currently, teachers have 90 days.

Teachers' union leaders say the measure will help weed out bad teachers and ensure students are learning.

If the measure became law, it would take effect in July.
