Are school vocational programs failing some students with special needs?
MCCCD Faculty Group Sues District, Governing Board Over Decision
Maricopa County Community College District employees are suing the governing board of the school district. The lawsuit comes after the board eliminated a faculty negotiation tool last month.
A nonprofit group representing employees filed the complaint asking a judge to change the board’s decision.
The community college board voted 4-3 last month to cut a program called “meet and confer,” essentially calling it an outdated policy.
The board meetings brought out hundreds of often-emotional employees to see how their jobs might be affected.
Board members said faculty can expect minimal changes.
