HOW DARE YOU QUESTION US? That’s the attitude of the two leaders of a teachers union in Minneapolis, and pretty much every other teachers union leader I’ve ever seen on TV.
The Minneapolis Federation of Teachers got a contract with the public school system that they are “extremely proud of” they told ABC, which requires schools to fire white teachers before any others, regardless of seniority or other factors.
The only word for that is “racist.” But in that interview, the president and vice president of the union that held the city hostage to get that policy are offended anyone is even daring to talk about it. “Why is this a story?”
They blame “MAGA media” for making an issue of it, rather than the existence of the policy or their special pride in it.
The attitude on these two women is beyond words. This is the same attitude they have for parents. Pure, haughty, snotty contempt. I mean it’s seriously unbelievable. If you can watch the whole thing through withlout stopping then you’ve got super powers.
The policy as explained by Fox News:
An agreement between the Minneapolis Federation of Teachers union and the school district states that White teachers will be laid off before teachers of color, regardless of their seniority.
The agreement, which was reached to end a two-week teacher strike last spring, says that starting this school year, “if excessing 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.”
Excessing teachers is the process by which staff are reduced at a particular school due to a drop in enrollment, funding or other reasons.
The agreement further goes on to say that when reinstating teachers, “the District shall prioritize the recall of a teacher who is a member of a population underrepresented among licensed teachers in the district.”
I got a whole lotta four letter words going through my mind right now. One in particular. I mean I’m trying not to think it but it is damn hard.
There has never been a more perfect clip of the kind of TRASH people that have power over American kids.
Man I have to stop typing because I am really going to lay into these two.
Consider this an OPEN THREAD.
