SB 1530 Defeated in Assembly

SB 1530, which would have changed the process by which school districts dismiss teachers accused of sexual, violent or drug-related offenses, has been defeated by the Assembly Education Committee. SB 1530 was introduced by state Senator Padilla (D-Pacoima) in response to the teacher sex-abuse scandal at Miramonde Elementary School. However, Senator Padilla is prepared to reintroduce the bill in the next session.

Although SB 1530 was supported by organizations such as ACSA and CSBA, the California Teachers Association (CTA) was strongly opposed to the bill, arguing it would dilute the due process rights of teachers.
