If the District used tactics that are similar to those I've saw used in the one I reaised my children in, I can understand an appeal. There were 25 statutory violations in one election cycle alone. The formal complaint of 25 was handed off to the Dakota County Attorney who handed it off to Hennepin County's Atty claiming possible conflict of interest as he was UNION endorsed. The Henn Atty sat on it until he decided to 'throw it out' as he 'didn't have time to deal with it'. The next election cycle brought another pile of violations, same excuse from the Co. Atty and this time he said he sent them to Washington County. Washington Co. never received anything from Dakota Co. Nothing was done with those either. The evidence was solid, mostly printed matter, yet the law doesn't apply to school districts and the unions who own and operate them with taxpayer monies. Some school districts believe they can operate above the law and are not accountable to their local taxpayers. Don't allow them to do that. In fact, the best performing school districts are under-funded, by their standards, and cannot afford all the frills we see in most MN schools. These schools typically score far better in academics. Less frills, more 'education'.

If you vote for union endorsed candidates you never have a right to complain about the type and quality of education your children get as YOU made that decision for them. Demand common accounting and budgetary practices with FULL disclosure for every penny spent and why. Do not allow them to hold back details as the devil is in them.
