The Michigan Education Association teachers’ union contract, which took effect in 2011 and was recently extended to 2017, mandates that the school district favor non-Christian teachers when making hiring decisions:
Regarding promotion to a vacant position, it states on page 22:
“Should there be two (2) or more of these applicants with equal qualifications for the position and one (1) or more of these applicants with equal qualifications is a current employee, the current employee with the greatest seniority shall be assigned. Special consideration shall be given to women and/or minority defined as: Native American, Asian American, Latino, African American and those of the non-Christian faith. However, in all appointments to vacant positions, the Board’s decision shall be final.”
Can you imagine a woman being a “minority” in the teaching profession?
