Oakland Diocese Wants Teachers to Conform to Catholic Church MoralsDownload audio (MP3)
Because they don't have tenure, all K-12 teachers in East Bay Catholic private schools are required to sign new contracts each year. But this year's contract includes a contentious new clause requiring them to conform to Catholic Church teachings in their personal lives. While private schools are legally allowed to impose religious restrictions, some teachers are unhappy with the addition in a diocese where 18 percent of teachers are not Catholic.
