Senate votes against teacher seniority
The Republican-controlled Legislature is about ready to send Democratic Gov. Mark Dayton a bill that reduces the importance of seniority when school districts consider laying off teachers.
Senators Monday favored the proposal 36-26, with just one Democrat voting "yes." The House earlier passed a similar measure.
The bill allows school districts to decide whether to lay off a teacher largely based on performance.
