Classroom School ChildrenLOS ANGELES — Key job protections for California teachers violate the state’s constitution, an L.A. County Superior Court judge ruled Tuesday.

The ruling came in a lawsuit challenging laws governing the process for laying off, dismissing and granting tenure to teachers, the Los Angeles Times reported.

A Silicon Valley-based group called Students Matter brought the lawsuit on behalf of nine students, contending the targeted laws hinder the removal of ineffective teachers and disproportionately hurt low-income and minority students.
