Haley Sweetland Edwards talked about her Time Magazine story, “Rotten Apples.” The piece details a California court case, Vergara v. California, involving teacher tenure in the state. Silicon Valley tech millionaire David Welch funded the suit based on his belief that protections allowing bad teachers to keep their jobs were hurting students. Ms. Edwards also discussed the implications of the case for other states and the broader issue of millionaires who have used their money to try to change U.S. education policy.
