According to Alpha News, a website in Minnesota, the Mankato School Board this month approved a policy that places “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.”

In Launching A Mentoring Program, A Minnesota School Board Votes To Pay Based On Skin Color

Separate and unequal.

That’s how a Minnesota school district is approaching a plan to develop mentors for its non-white teachers.

The separate part has to do with location.

According to Alpha News, a website in Minnesota, the Mankato School Board this month approved a policy that places “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.”

In other words, the “collegial support” provided non-white teachers to improve their retention rate means segregating them from other teachers.

The unequal part concerns the pay of these mentors.

Under the new policy, the district can “pay a stipend to a mentor who may be a current or former teacher who has taught at least three years and is not on an improvement plan.”

And it can use “additional stipends as incentives to mentors of color or who are American Indian.”

Meanwhile, the district’s “retention strategies” can include “providing financial incentives for teachers of color and teachers who are American Indian to work in the school or district for at least five years… .”

The policy is based on a state law that says school districts must have a mentoring program, which may, but is not mandated to, use financial bonuses to recruit mentors.

Using the Newspeak tactic familiar among liberals, the proponents of this segregation policy claim it’s really not segregation.

“When you’re one [minority] of a [white] majority it can be very isolating and lonely. To have a support system in place for them is not to segregate them, it is absolutely to support them,” School Board member Erin Roberts said, according to Alpha News.

“It’s not about trying to throw the few [non-white] individuals we have into one building. It’s about showing them they aren’t alone.”

Yet some can see through this ruse.

Minnesota Republican state Rep. Jeremy Munson noted on Facebook, “Our largest local school district just voted to pay people differently, not on merit, or by the content of their character, but based solely on the color of their skin.”
