Report: State Lost 1,500 Teachers After Tenure Reform

A new study seems to show that Louisiana lost more than 1500 teachers after a tenure reform measure passed in 2012.

The study from Tulane University indicates teachers left the state school system at a greater rate in the two years after the reform bill passed.  Teachers nearing retirement and those at poorly performing schools were among those who left the system at a higher rate.

The study's authors say the loss of job security was a motivating factor that pushed those teachers into quitting.
