SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Utah’s largest teachers’ union says new rules for investigating educator misconduct are too broad and violate a teacher’s constitutional right to due process.

The Utah Education Association sued the state school board this week over the rules that allow evidence and testimony at disciplinary hearings without notifying an accused teacher.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1NFPYg1) the rules were passed this year.

Utah school board spokeswoman Emilie Wheeler says state attorneys are reviewing the lawsuit but she had no comment on the complaint.
