(Minneapolis, MN)  —  White teachers will be laid off first, regardless of experience and tenure, under Minneapolis’ teachers contract. The agreement is part of a new contract starting in 2023 between the Minneapolis Federation of Teachers and Minneapolis Public Schools.  The language in the contract says it’s an effort to avoid layoffs to a teacher who is “a member of a population underrepresented.”  Several conservative groups have threatened to sue the union on the basis of discrimination.
