Silicon Valley’s Welch Vows Nationwide Fight on Tenure

The fight to end teacher tenure is just beginning, said David Welch, the Silicon Valley entrepreneur who backed a California lawsuit in which a state judge ruled the practice was unconstitutional.

Students Matter, a nonprofit group founded by Welch, is talking to other states about bringing similar lawsuits, he said. He vowed to support the California case against appeals all the way to the Supreme Court if necessary.
