Last week, Superior Court Judge Rolf M. Treu in Los Angeles ruled that 
five California statutes protecting the job security of schoolteachers 
were unconstitutional. Likening his brief, sixteen-page ruling to the 
Supreme Court’s 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision outlawing 
racial segregation in public schools, Judge Treu invalidated laws 
protecting teacher tenure and seniority. He said that the effect of 
these laws was to deny high-quality education to minority children by 
making it difficult to fire “grossly ineffective” teachers.
