Next Installments in D.C., R.I. Teacher Dramas

| No Recommendations

Like sands through the hourglass! Here's the next installment in some of the top teacher dramas making their way through the newsfeed:

• The Rhode Island Central Falls situation (your favorite noun here, I'm going to go with mess) is going to court, with the teachers' union alleging that the district didn't follow state law and local-bargaining provisions on terminations.

• The District of Columbia's chief financial officer may not certify the tentative D.C. contract over concerns that the district has a shortfall and wouldn't be able to cover its share of the cost of teacher raises, and that the private funding from foundations comes with too many conditions. Bill Turque has the scoop here.
