WICHITA, Kansas – What is making headlines about the school funding bill is it makes it easier to fire teachers.
The Kansas Supreme Court ruled on the issue back in 1957.
It was the case of Million v. Board of Education.
The justices said that teachers should be protected from being fired for political, religious or personal reasons.
But that doesn’t mean that teachers can’t be fired.
If they break the rules of the district, tenured teachers can be fired.
The district has to follow a process outlined by the state court that includes hearings testimony and appeals.
The new law strips that process away.
