Judge to Rule Again on Teacher Tenure Law

A Baton Rouge judge will rule for a second time in early January on the state's education reform laws.
Baton Rouge -- A Baton Rouge judge will rule for a second time in early January on the state's education reform laws.

Judge Michael Caldwell had previously ruled that Act 1 was unconstitutional because it bundled together too many items spanning Louisiana's education laws.

Act 1 tied teacher salaries, tenure, promotions and termination to a new evaluation system.

The Louisiana Federation of Teachers filed the lawsuit challenging the 2012 law.

But a ruling by the State Supreme Court vacated Caldwell's decision and sent it back down to him for re-evaulation.

Caldwell said he'll issue his decision Jan. 8.
