More Ways to Fire Oklahoma Teachers
04/13/2011
 

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - School teachers in Oklahoma could be fired

for a host of new reasons under a bill that cleared a House

committee, raising concerns of opponents who contend educators are

on the front line of a Republican assault on public education.

The House Education Committee on Tuesday approved a bill that

would add dishonesty, insubordination and negligence to the list of

reasons for which a career teacher could be fired.

State Rep. Lee Denney, R-Cushing, says the goal of her bill is

to ensure that good teachers remain in the classroom, while school

districts have broader ability to get rid of ineffective teachers.

Meanwhile, Republican Gov. Mary Fallin is expected to sign a

measure into law on Tuesday that eliminates a teacher's ability to

appeal their dismissal in district court.
