Part 4 – Hypocrisy by Design: North High School redesign meeting skewed by MPS oversight

Really?
Enough is enough! Some community members refuse to drink the kool aid from the Minneapolis Public Schools. Like the Noble Charter School fiasco, there is no “community buy-in” with the new design of North High School, simple because there’s been no information distributed in an intentional way by the faulty leadership of the Minneapolis Public Schools. One thing to remember, “The same conciseness that created the problems in the Minneapolis Public Schools certainly cannot solve the problems.” Just ask the North High School group what happened to the 125 freshmen? Are we to forget about that too?

Minneapolis, MN (IBNN NEWS/April 15, 2011)…Today at the new district headquarters job site, a Native American iron worker confirmed the iron/steel being used for the new building comes from Canada and China.

In a “celebration” that seems premature, and a move that is nothing more than pomp & circumstance, a steel beam to be signed by political hacks and faulty district officials with community members who attend , (if they got the information in advance which is highly unlikely).

Without answers on women and minority compliance, school district and political players will celebrate the beginning of construction on the $36 million Minneapolis Public Schools Educational Service Center by signing this 30-foot long steel beam, which will be installed along the front of the building, facing West Broadway Avenue.

I got a beam you can sign – with some good ideas where you can put it.

On hand for this lustrous event will be:

Mayor R. T. Rybak, MPS Superintendent Bernadeia Johnson, MPS School Board Chair Jill Davis, Council Member Don “Burn North High down” Samuels, State Senator Linda Higgins, State Representative Bobby Joe Champion and Tom Lander from Mortenson Development.

Still no information on women and minority goals – this is a misdirect from the Minneapolis Public Schools administration.
