Vergara Briefs

 

On September 16, 2015 some of the nation’s top legal scholars, education policy experts, civil rights advocates, award-winning teachers, school board members and administrators filed five amici curiae, or “friend of the court,” briefs with the California Court of Appeal urging reversal of the deeply flawed decision in Vergara v. California. These filings shine a spotlight on the numerous and major flaws that would harm students in last year’s decision striking down important due process rights for California educators, as well as other laws governing hiring and layoffs of state educators. The briefs strongly criticize the ruling on both legal and policy grounds, urging the decision to be reversed.
