Lefty Minnesota School Board Votes to Pay Black Teachers More Just Because They’re Black

A left-wing Minnesota school board voted to pay non-white teachers and employees more than whites just because they are not white people.

The Mankato, Minnesota, School Board voted to give “additional stipends” to non-white workers and for teachers to be segregated by race.

The new policy states:

  1. additional stipends as incentives to mentors of color or who are American Indian;
  2. financial supports for professional learning community affinity groups across schools within and between districts for teachers from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups to come together throughout the school year;
  3. programs for induction aligned with the school district or school mentorship program during the first three (3) years of teaching, especially for teachers from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups.

    The funding may also be used for “retention strategies or protection from unrequested leave of absences in the beginning years of employment for teachers of color and teachers who are American Indian.”

    “Retention strategies may include providing financial incentives for teachers of color and teachers who are American Indian … and placing American Indian educators at sites with other American Indian educators and educators of color at sites with other educators of color to reduce isolation and increase opportunity for collegial support,” the policy added.

    Per Breitbart News:

    Board members defended the policy of placing same-race teachers in work environments, claiming it is not “segregation,” reported AlphaNews Tuesday.

    “When you’re one [minority] of a [white] majority it can be very isolating and lonely,” said board member Erin Roberts, elaborating:

    “To have a support system in place for them is not to segregate them, it is absolutely to support them … 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 also said, according to AlphaNews.

    With leftists leading us all, the nation is hurtling backward in race relations.
