KNEA Challenges Bill That Passed Teacher Due Process

By  | 

TOPEKA, Kan. (WIBW)- Kansas National Education Association is planning to challenge a recently passed law that eliminated teacher's due process in court.

While the KNEA didn't have an exact written statement of a complaint they are going to file, the KNEA is still preparing a lawsuit very soon.

The legislature passed House Bill 2506 eliminating the due process rights of teachers commonly known as tenure.

The KNEA called the policy an attack on teachers and plans to file a lawsuit in two weeks in Shawnee County Court.

In response to KNEA, Governor Sam Brownback said, "the education bill provided $129 million dollars in funding. This is a good bill that benefits Kansas children. I hope KNEA will take no action that threatens funding for our schools."
