Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation Wednesday making it easier for school districts to fire abusive teachers, capping an effort that gained momentum after a particularly egregious case of misconduct in Los Angeles highlighted how difficult it can be to remove problem teachers.
AB215 takes effect Jan. 1 after several failed attempts in recent years to overhaul statutes governing teacher dismissals.
The signing came just two weeks after a court struck down California's teacher tenure laws and tossed out other statutes related to firing educators.

Now if only he’d sign one streamlining the firing of politicians. Including POTUS.
IOW, rather than have the entire architecture of teacher protections tossed, they've come back with as much as they think they can get away with, forcing students and parents to sue again.
This would be good except that I suspect they mean “republican” teachers when they say “abusive”
Awesome, now it only takes 10 years to fire incompetent teachers instead of 20 years.
Well thats gratitude for you. Those teachers unions worked so hard funneling taxpayer dollars into his campaign coffers.
A school district in Mi had a contract that would allow a teacher to be caught coming to school... drunk, high on drugs, or even selling drugs to students,...4 times before they could be fired!!
Public sector unions should be outlawed!
“I suspect they mean republican teachers when they say abusive
I suspect that you might be right!
“Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation Wednesday making it easier for school districts to fire abusive teachers...”
Incompetent teachers still have a job for life, though.
