Katharine Strunk commented on yesterday’s landmark Vergara v. California ruling in an Education Week article titled, “Teacher Protections Violate Student Rights, Calif. Judge Finds.

Strunk, who is an expert on teachers’ unions, noted that the ruling, “is a signal to the legislature that these laws need to be not just tinkered with, but drastically reconsidered.” She added, “The question now is whether there’s the willpower to do something about it—and the capacity to do something about it.”
