[Susan notes: The Wall Street Journal publishes a letter that takes them to task. And they put a good title on it: 'Landmark' Case: Tenure Also Protects Good Teachers.]
To the editor
Regarding your June 11 editorial A School Reform Landmark: In the current politicized climate it is not so difficult to find a judge with an agenda, and Vergara v. State of California serves nicely as a case du jour. To begin with, Vergara is not a landmark until and unless the California Supreme Court or the U.S. Supreme Court rules on the issue; at present, the case is not binding on any other state unless, as a case of first impression, such state chooses to adopt the Vergara holding.
