California Court Strikes Several Teacher Tenure Statutes

In case you have not seen it, a lower court in California struck down, on constitutional grounds, several provisions involving teacher tenure. Vergara v. California (Calif Superior Court, June 10, 2014). Frankly, I have never seen such a poorly written decision. The decision appears to be drafted by a law student. It is written in conclusionary form and does not contain very much analysis which supports its conclusion. 

Though this appears to be a political, rather than legal decision, it has caused much public debate.

Law review commentary would be most welcome.
