Give me a f-ing break. Another scam by those that say that spending almost half of the current State Budget (over $18 Billion in the current biennium) is not enough money. The lazy a55 teacher's union is who was complaining.
One has to wonder if the school district(s) those schools are in. If they just didn't want to put the money into the A/C systems. But instead into the pockets of the ones running the districts?

Maybe a few less NEA weekends would help to offset the cost of running the A/C for a few days. But the idea that there was some level of racial disparity involved in this situation is nonsense.

Looks like the russian troll forgets that very few areas of Minneapolis is only one shade of folks.

It might have segregated schools in it's country. But here, like the housing in the neighborhoods, very few schools are just one race.
