In some ways, Minnesota seems completely lost. No matter how bad things get, they keep doubling down.

The College Fix reports:

School district seeks asst. superintendent who can ‘examine presence of Whiteness’

A school district in Minnesota is seeking an assistant superintendent who can “actively listen for both spoken and unspoken racial concerns” and “examine the presence and role of ‘Whiteness’ in systems and structures.”

The candidate for the St. Louis Park Public Schools position also must be “open to feedback regarding their own racial blind spots” and “seek multiple racial perspectives.”

Further, the applicant must “foster joy” and “cultivate a culture of accountability for systemic racial equity transformation.”

As noted by Alpha News, the position — which has a “significant influence in how the school district operates” — pays between $134,000 and $201,000 per year.

According to job posting’s “Summary of Responsibilities,” the asst. superintendent also will

proactively support the Superintendent to create and communicate anti-racist structures and systems, work to interrupt systems of oppression, and serve as a role model for culturally relevant pedagogy [and be] unwaveringly committed to anti-racist actions and use data to adapt and sustain their efforts towards racial equity to plan, direct, and coordinate action to achieve the mission and strategic objectives.

Other requirements include:

— “demonstrat[es] leadership for racial equity”

— is “racially conscious”

— “prioritize[s] their own racial equity journey”

— makes use of “effective restorative practice techniques”

St. Louis Park’s March 18 announcement of Carla Hines (pictured) as its new superintendent notes that her “vision for racial equity transformation is impressive.”
