The long fight to regain your “waived” due process rights continues. In February 2017 (yes, that’s correct) we filed a lawsuit on behalf of GAE member Ronda Ware, the Floyd County Association of Educators and GAE. We argue that rights previously earned under the Fair Dismissal Act are vested and protected under the anti-retroactivity and impairment-of contract clauses of the Georgia constitution. In other words, these rights cannot be “waived” by the conversion to a charter school system. Though the wheels of justice grind slowly, owing partly to the pandemic, we have finally made it to Georgia Court of Appeals. Read the brief.
