Senate Unanimously Approves Legislation Reducing Teacher Job Security</strong></p><p>The Illinois Senate has unanimously approved sweeping legislation that would reduce teachers&#39; job security and emphasize performance over seniority. The legislation would make it harder for teachers to achieve tenure. Even after getting tenure, bad teachers could be fired. &nbsp;If a district has to make layoffs, jobs would be protected based on classroom performance instead of seniority.</p> Fri, 15 Apr 2011 14:26:58 +0000 Julie Bierach & The Associated Press 959 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Morning headlines: Friday, April 15, 2011
