Just Wait Until You See What Minnesota's Liberal Teachers Are Demanding Now!
You have to wonder if there's a bottom on this nonsense crapshoot we now call the public school system. Some areas have seriously bit the left side of the bullet and based on reports, I'd say at least on school district in Minnesota wants to single handedly bring back segregation. Teachers of the district are demanding to pick their co-workers by the color of their skin, oh and raises for 'some' educators.
"A Minnesota school district will soon exclusively give non-white teachers extra pay to become mentors to other minority teachers.
The Mankato School Board earlier this month voted unanimously to provide "additional stipends" to non-white teachers who become mentors to other non-white colleagues. Additionally, Minnesota-based Alpha News reported that the new policy will also see the district "placing American Indian educators at sites with other American Indian educators and educators of color at sites with other educators of color.”
The school board claims that this new policy will "increase opportunity for collegial support" for teachers who are black, indigenous, and for other people of color. They hope to increase retention rates among these demographics."
School board votes unanimously on a policy that would pay non-white teachers more and place them in work environments based on their race (segregation).

"Critics have pointed out that the latter of the district’s new policies, which will have administrators placing teachers in work environments based on their race, looks a lot like segregation. Board members explained that this is not segregation, though, before the vote took place.
“When you’re one [minority] of a [white] majority it can be very isolating and lonely. To have a support system in place for them is not to segregate them, it is absolutely to support them,” member Erin Roberts said. “It’s not about trying to throw the few [BIPOC] individuals we have into one building. It’s about showing them they aren’t alone.”
“It creates global citizens at the end of the day,” Vice Chair Kenneth Reid added, speaking on the new policies."
BIPOC claims that they're an organization that 'aims to build authentic and lasting solidarity among Black, Indigenous and People of Color'. Which if they see segrating faculty by color as reaching 'solidarity' then I have to say, they didn't understand the assignment. The idea behind true solidarity is being around like-minded people, skin color cant be a factor because should be irrelivant in determining character.
And giving people raises based on color and not merit? Come on...
