Sacramento, CA – California Teachers Association President Dean E. Vogel issued the following statement regarding Gov. Jerry Brown’s veto of AB 375—a bill that would have streamlined the teacher dismissal process.
“We are disappointed by the governor’s decision to veto AB 375. This bill presented a great opportunity to take a big step in streamlining the dismissal process to keep students safe, safeguard the integrity of the profession and protect the rights of educators. It was designed to start reducing procedural complexities and address concerns that were brought up in the previous legislative session. We appreciate the leadership demonstrated by Assemblymember Joan Buchanan and Senator Alex Padilla and will continue to work with them and other lawmakers on issues important to students and educators.”
