I am writing to highlight a few critical flaws [of AB375]. I’m unaware of any school board or superintendent who has taken a position in support of the bill. It appears no one who has investigated and removed a teacher believes AB 375 is good for schools. In fact, statewide groups representing school boards, administrators, county superintendents, business officials and school attorneys are universally opposed. The professionals on the front line, trusted to maintain safe school environments, believe the bill will make it harder, not easier or faster, to dismiss teachers who may be a threat to student safety.
...AB 375 fails to fix a major problem with our dismissal process.
