Woke Minneapolis school district's new teacher contract stipulates that all white teachers will be laid-off before a single person-of-color is laid-off in the event of budget issues.
Regardless of seniority. Regardless of their history of discipline actions. Regardless of skill-sets and linguistic abilities or age-group they are credentialed to teach.
Currently, 80% of grade-school teachers are white. I assume the stream of eligible teachers coming out of college is about 75% white.
There is a shortage of people willing to work. Teachers are leaving $40k/year positions and working in retail management for $55k because of the similarity in skill sets.
Due to revenue constraints, public schools cannot match those salaries.
Wait for it...by December the Minneapolis school district will be whining that no white people are applying for their open positions and they cannot find enough qualified P-o-C who want to work in Minnestupid.
The reason given for the blatantly racist contract is to rectify long-standing racial discrimination and they point to the racial composition disparity between the students and the teachers as "evidence". That might be true IF the immigrants to the United States was 80% Swedes and Norwegians,
Krauts Germans and Italians. But 95% or more of the immigrants are P-o-C and their children are filling city schools and the parents are not qualified to teach.
Stupid should hurt.
