AB 934 would have changed probationary period

Statement from the California Federation of Teachers:

Assembly Bill 934 from Assemblymember Susan Bonilla failed to make it out of the Senate Education Committee today. CFT had opposed AB 934 from the outset. The flawed bill, which would have changed the probationary term for new teachers from two years to three years, did nothing to address one of the real challenges facing education today: the ongoing teacher shortage. CFT now looks forward to engaging in a real process aimed at improving the state’s education system, and making reforms that will have a significant impact in the lives of our students, that educators can help craft.
