Girl slams school board over its violation of 'no politics' rule

A 9-year-old student complained to a Minnesota school board recently that it had reneged on a policy barring teachers from displaying Black Lives Matter posters.

The student, identified only as "Novalee," told a Lakeville Area School Board meeting she had seen BLM posters on her teacher’s wall at school. That, she said, contradicted what the board stressed at a prior meeting: "no politics in school."

She proclaimed the posters’ essential political message was "getting rid of police officers, rioting, burning buildings down while King Gov. Walz just sits on his throne and watches."

The suburban Minneapolis school district sent out a memo last September stating that schools were to "maintain neutrality as to all political campaigns and issues."
