A group backed by wealthy financier Rex Sinquefield has renewed its effort to get rid of teacher tenure in Missouri. TeachGreat.org has filed a proposed initiative petition to get a proposal on the 2014 ballot. A similar measure was proposed, but not acted upon, in 2012.

Yesterday, at the Missouri Ethics Commission, someone didn’t get coal in their stocking:

C121045 12/24/2013 TEACHGREAT.ORG Rex Sinquefield 244 Bent Walnut Westphalia MO 65085 Retired 12/24/2013 $750,000.00

Now they have some serious money.
