Kendall Qualls Lambasts Minneapolis Teachers’ Union for Being “Out of Touch”
MINNEAPOLIS – Yesterday, the Minneapolis teacher’s union announced it will strike until negotiations can be made with district administrators. Calling this decision foolhardy, Republican gubernatorial candidate Kendall Qualls harshly criticized the union’s decision to further disrupt in-person learning for kids.
“The Minneapolis teacher’s union doesn’t truly care about the needs of families, and this decision amplifies that. Two years our kids have been the silent victims throughout this entire pandemic and their futures continue to be impacted as they fall behind other students. Parents are tired of feeling left behind and know I’m on the side of reason and will advocate for expanded school choice to return power back to the people because our kids deserve a stable learning environment.
Being out of touch with the needs of the community shouldn’t come as a surprise to parents considering last fall the Minneapolis teacher’s union also advocated for its members to vote “yes” to replace the Minneapolis police department. A vote that clearly failed after Minneapolis residents had their say at the polls. While the teachers’ unions continue to pursue radical political agendas, it’s evident they’re forgetting they signed up to serve the educational needs of children and help them succeed in the future.”
