Minnesota appeals court upholds dismissal of teacher tenure suit


September 6, 2017

ST. PAUL — If Minnesotans want to change state teachers union protections, they should petition the Legislature, not seek changes in the courts.

That's the opinion of a Minnesota Court of Appeals panel, released Tuesday, Sept. 5, upholding a lower court's dismissal of a lawsuit claiming the rules were unconstitutional. Instead, the panel found, state lawmakers should decide whether changes are needed because teachers union protections worsen the academic achievement gap between students of color and their peers.
