MINNESOTA (Yaakov M / VINnews) — It sounds almost surreal. The Minneapolis public school system has implemented a new policy requiring white teachers to be fired before blacks and other minorities.
The supposed justification for the blatantly racist policy is to “remedy the continuing effects of past discrimination,” according to the school district.
The new contract between Minneapolis Public Schools and the local teachers union mandates that if schools need to fire or lay off teachers, the white ones will be the first tossed overboard.
The agreement is a significant adjustment to the prior seniority-based layoff system under which teachers employed the least amount of time are first to be fired. Under the (insane racist) new rules, if a minority teacher is set to be laid off, the district will instead fire the next least senior teacher who is white.
“If [laying off] a teacher who is a member of a population underrepresented among licensed teachers in the site, the district shall excess the next least senior teacher, who is not a member of an underrepresented population,” reads the agreement.
This is the latest example of teachers’ unions attempts to institute policies favoring minority teachers in order to achieve racial equity. Staff at New York City’s elite Dalton School recently demanded the administration pay off black faculty’s student debt.
The district released a statement to the Washington Times Tuesday, offering a defense of the deal..
“To remedy the continuing effects of past discrimination, Minneapolis Public Schools and the Minneapolis Federation of Teachers (MFT) mutually agreed to contract language that aims to support the recruitment and retention of teachers from underrepresented groups as compared to the labor market and to the community served by the school district,” the district said in an email.
