Minnesota can add ethnic studies standard in schools - with one change, judge rules

The Minnesota Department of Education may include an ethnic studies component in its revised social studies standards now that a ruling Tuesday has settled a long-running debate over whether the agency has that authority.

But there's a caveat.

Chief Judge Jenny Starr co-signed the decision by Administrative Law Judge Eric Lipman, who ruled Tuesday that MDE may adopt the new ethnic studies standard but must also rewrite what he called an "impermissibly vague" rule.
