If a House Bill that relates to the public school system becomes law, then public school districts across the state facing economic hardships will have the right to furlough teachers without considering tenure, or “last in, first out.”

H.B. 855 amends an act of March 1949 and includes certain provisions applicable to public schools, as well as to private and parochial schools, and changes the laws relating to “professional employees, further providing for causes for suspension and for persons to be suspended.”

See the Journal’s Friday, April 1st edition for full story.
