ROBERTS, Justice, dissenting.
I dissent. The Local Agency Law, Act of December 2, 1968, P.L. 1133, § 4, 53 P.S. § 11304, required appellee school district to provide appellant James Wynkoop a hearing before terminating his contract of employment. Because appellant's termination did not become valid under the act until he was provided with a proper hearing, he is entitled to appropriate relief.
