Gov. Bobby Jindal signed a bill Tuesday to revamp the way teachers appeal disciplinary rulings.
Under a 2012 law that Jindal pushed, a three-member panel was set up to hear appeals on dismissals and other issues.
However, teacher union leaders said that makeup was tilted in favor of management because it included the representative of the district’s superintendent, the school’s principal and the teacher’s designee.
In addition, a district judge ruled earlier this year that the panel was unconstitutional after a challenge from a teacher in the Monroe City School District.
