Durham school board members voted unanimously yesterday to join a lawsuit that challenges the elimination of teacher tenure and replaces it with a selective performance pay system. 

More than a dozen local school boards across the state have also passed resolutions opposing the mandate, including Wake County Schools. Host Frank Stasio talks with WUNC education reporter Dave Dewitt about response to the legislation.
