Letter: Dinniman’s vote unfair to best teachers

The Senate recently voted on HB 805, also known as the Protect Excellent Teachers Act, to eliminate seniority-based tenure and protect our best and brightest teachers who may be subject to layoffs despite their outstanding performances as educators. This bill would hold our school districts more accountable by allowing administrators to terminate teachers if they receive continuous failing reviews.

Unfortunately, instead of protecting the interests of our teachers and our students, state Sen. Andy Dinniman, D-19, sided with his union buddies and voted against this very important bill. Sen.Dinniman once again put government unions before common sense. He turned his back on our students and our educators because he wants to protect the people padding his campaign coffers.

It is critical that we invest in education with a focus on accountability and quality. As your state senator, I will fight to ensure that the very best teachers are educating our students, not simply those that have been there the longest.

Obviously, Sen. Dinniman does not feel the same way.
