Protest over teacher tenure lawsuit
Rochester, N.Y. Some local educators protested a lawsuit over the New York States teacher tenure system Wednesday.
The lawsuit was filed earlier this week and alleges that job protections violate a students right to a quality education.
Some demonstrators say the lawsuit attacks due process right for teachers.
"I don't go around saying theres more crime in our neighborhoods because officers have protections and due process; I dont say theres more fires because firefighters have due process," said Rosemary Rivera, a parent. "Why in the world would I say teachers are the cause of our childrens failures when they do fail because they have due process, that's insane."
The group believes tenure protects good teachers from unfair employment decision.
