Nets Bury School Board Proposing White Teachers Get Laid Off First

News & Politics

On Tuesday, it was reported that the Minneapolis teachers union and the school board reached a tentative agreement that if layoffs are needed, white teachers will be laid off before non-white teachers regardless of seniority. Since racism to fight alleged racism is apparently fine with the three leftist broadcast networks, ABC’s World News Tonight, CBS Evening News & NBC Nightly News all ignored this blatantly racist and unconstitutional policy.  

Instead of reporting on the racism of the Minneapolis school district, the three leftist networks wasted valuable airtime on fearmongering over climate change and droughts in the midwest, and a shark attack off the coast of the Florida Keys.  

During Tuesday evening’s Special Report on the Fox News Channel, correspondent Garrett Tenney reported how “if the district is forced to lay off teachers, race will take precedent over experience and seniority when deciding who gets let go. In a section titled protections for educators of color.” 

Reading from the contract, Tenney reported that “the contract says if excessing, which means laying off or relocating 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.”

According to Tenney “that same policy would apply to the order in which teachers are reinstated to job openings.”  And that “MPS says these changes are needed, quote, to remedy the continuing effects of past discrimination by the district to improve the retention of teachers of color and to ultimately have a workforce that reflects the demographics of the city schools.” 

Despite the well-deserved backlash, Tenney reported that “the teachers union is not backing down though. In fact, some of its members are suggesting this policy could serve as a model for schools nationwide.” 

Sadly this is what the woke left is all about. They believe in seeking revenge for racism that occurred in the past by enacting racist policies today, and the leftist media is always happy to sweep the news under the rug for them. 

This appalling example of bias by omission from the three leftist broadcast networks was made possible by Verizon on ABC, Ensure on CBS, and Allstate on NBC. Their information is linked so you can let them know about the biased news they fund.

FNC’s Special Report
August 16, 2022
6:26:46 p.m. Eastern 

BRET BAIER: Social justice or discrimination that is the question tonight in Minneapolis where a teachers union and the school board say if necessary white educators will be laid off before teachers of color regardless of seniority. Correspondent Garrett Tenney reports tonight from our midwest bureau. Good evening, Garrett. 

GARRETT TENNEY: Bret, good evening to you. That is just one of the so-called anti-racist provisions and tentative agreements between Minneapolis public schools and the teachers union. Under this new contract which is still being finalized if the district is forced to lay off teachers, race will take precedent over experience and seniority when deciding who gets let go. In a section titled protections for educators of color. 

The contract says if excessing, which means laying off or relocating 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. That same policy would apply to the order in which teachers are reinstated to job openings. 

MPS says these changes are needed, quote, to remedy the continuing effects of past discrimination by the district to improve the retention of teachers of color and to ultimately have a workforce that reflects the demographics of the city schools. Currently, 60 percent of MPS students are nonwhite compared to just 33 percent of staff. But some critics argue the policy is unconstitutional and has almost no chance of surviving if it’s challenged in court. 

JAMES DICKEY (UPPER MIDWEST LAW CENTER): The Supreme Court has repeatedly said that an attempt to remedy past discrimination that no longer exists by discriminating in the present is a violation of the protection clause of the 14th Amendment. And that’s the case here. 

TENNEY: And James Dickey’s office says he has already heard from taxpayers and teachers in Minneapolis who want to challenge this policy if it’s not changed. The teachers union is not backing down though. In fact, some of its members are suggesting this policy could serve as a model for schools nationwide. Bret? 

BAIER: We’ll follow that one. Garrett, thank you.
