Debate over a proposed law in Louisiana that would make it more difficult for teachers to earn and keep tenure is expected to resume after the state Supreme Court in May ruled that talks on the measure can continue. The legislation originally was struck down by a lower court, which ruled it was unconstitutional because the bill contained multiple subjects. Steve Monaghan, president of the Louisiana Federation of Teachers, now says he will revive the union's lawsuit against the measure with new complaints.
