UMLC Submits Public Comments on Proposed Teacher Licensure Rules

This week, the Upper Midwest Law Center submitted public comments to Administrative Law Judge James R. Mortenson with regard to the proposed amendments to rules governing teacher licensure and permissions. Doug Seaton and James Dickey’s remarks state that the proposed rules suffer substantial constitutional defects, and are invalid under state and federal law, thus should not be approved. Some of the concerns cited by UMLC are that the proposal imposes an ideological litmus test on those who wish to serve Minnesota’s public-school children as teachers. Further, teachers cannot be forced to give up their beliefs or rights in order to receive employment.
