Tenure bill heads to governor
The Colorado Legislature gave final approval on the last day of the 2010 session today that pegs teacher performance to how well students do.
Senate Bill 191 would allow teachers to earn tenure if their students improve over three consecutive years, but takes that away if they fall behind for two years in a row.
Despite changes in the House that altered a controversial appeals process, it still earned opposition among some Democratic lawmakers.
It heads to Gov. Bill Ritter for his signature.
