As California law is currently written, a school teacher who has sexually or physically abused students can use the rules to their advantage to resign before being fired in order to keep their retirement benefits, even if they are later prosecuted by law enforcement for their crimes.
The parents and concerned people who make up CALIFORNIANS FOR SAFE SCHOOLS find such abuse of children and the public's trust unacceptable.
After two previous attempts to pass legislation that would speed up the dismissal process for abusive teachers, both of which faced strong resistance from California's teachers union, Assembly Bill 375 would allow school districts to fire teachers with probable cause before they could resign.
