Protesters bring Minneapolis school board meeting to a halt

 


A group of 20 or so protesters angered by Minneapolis Public Schools’ contract with Reading Horizons, a Utah-based company that provided books some teachers found laden with cultural and racial stereotypes, forced an abrupt end to Tuesday’s special Board of Education meeting.

Protesters associated with the Social Justice Education Movement, including teachers, students and disgruntled community members, called for an end to the district’s $1.2 million contract with Reading Horizons, which released a controversial literacy curriculum.
