Students take a stand to topple teacher tenureA 2012 legal case brought by nine public school students in California, who argued the state’s teacher tenure laws denied their right to a quality education, ended a few months ago after a judge declared the laws unconstitutional.

The professionals are vexed at the moment, however I have a suspicion that some will soon realize this is related to volcanic / seismic activity in the region.
