In 2011 Michigan enacted a package of laws to amend the Teacher Tenure Act, Revised School Code and PERA. Public Act 101 revised the standards for allowing public school teachers to be granted tenure. The act also made the process of revoking tenure more efficient for ineffective teachers.[76] Public Act 102 enacted “Last-In/First-Out” reforms to protect talented new teachers from being laid off simply because they lacked seniority.[77] Both of these laws would be susceptible to a union-led court challenge as violations of Proposal 2 if it were to pass.
