Trial court's grant of School District's petition for writ of mandate to proceed with termination of a High School music teacher's refusal to obtain certification to teach English learners is affirmed as the District had the authority under Education Code section 35160 to require teachers to obtain the certification in order to comply with the mandates imposed on it by the Legislation. Therefore, defendant's specific arguments are rejected.
