House bill would allow non-seniority teacher layoffs
By Dan Hardy, Inquirer Staff Writer
School districts in Pennsylvania are barred by law from laying off teachers in most cases, and when furloughs do occur, they must be by seniority.A bill introduced this month in the state House would change that.
The legislation would, for the first time in decades, allow teachers and other school professionals to be laid off to help close budget shortfalls. Now, layoffs can be triggered only by declining enrollment, school closings, or changes in academic programs.

  1. A bill has been introduced in the State Legislature to do just that. In reality, there is no reason for any teacher layoffs.
