Labor Day, Election Time - so, some (not Sofia) Vergara moves...

so ...NYT California Governor Appeals Court Ruling Overturning Protections for Teachers

The case was brought by an organization of students, Students Matter, backed by a Silicon Valley technology millionaire, David Welch. A lawyer for the organization, Theodore J. Boutrous Jr., criticized Mr. Brown’s decision to appeal.

“The State of California should be supporting and protecting students not defending these harmful and irrational laws,” Mr. Boutrous said Saturday. “Judge Treu got it exactly right, and this appeal is destined for failure.”

Teacher unions here had denounced the decision, saying teachers were being scapegoated for the failures of educational institutions. But the ruling was strongly welcomed by the federal education secretary, Arne Duncan, and California Republicans — including Neel Kashkari, who is challenging Mr. Brown this fall.

LA Times Assembly Speaker Toni Atkins (D-Sacramento), a primary proponent of the new funding, said she'd work to overcome Brown's objections.

“I’ll do whatever lobbying I have to do to get it done," she said.

what does that mean?
