Both the state Assembly and Senate have also approved legislation to give teachers a break during the recent dust-up about Common Core education.

Low-rated teachers now will not be at risk of losing their jobs based simply on student performance on the new Common Core tests.

However, that protection is guaranteed only for the next two years.
