Teacher tenure overhaul fails

A proposal that would make it easier for public school teachers to earn and retain a form of job protection called tenure failed to advance Wednesday in a Senate committee.

Current law requires teachers to get the state’s top job evaluation for five out of six years to become tenured.

State Sen. Rick Gallot, D-Ruston, wanted to award the job protection for those with the top rating for three consecutive years.

However, no member of the Senate Education Committee offered a motion, which likely kills the bill for the session.
