News from CTA President, Eric Heins, regarding the Vegara Decision

Great news in the Vergara v. State of California lawsuit... In a sweeping victory for students and educators, the California Court of Appeal today reversed a lower court decision in the deeply flawed Vergara v. State of California lawsuit. The unanimous appellate opinion is a stinging rebuke to Judge Rolf M. Treu's poorly-reasoned ruling, and to the allegations made and millions of dollars spent by wealthy anti-union "education reformers" to bypass voters, parents, and the legislature with harmful education policy changes. The reversal affirms the arguments of educators, civil rights groups, legal scholars and education policy experts that the state statutes affirming educator rights do not harm students.

SEA Scholarship Applications are now being process. Scholarships will be awarded at the May site representative meeting on Tuesday, May 24, 2016.
