[UPDATE on Sept. 7: The contract now is also available on the school district web site.]
The Minneapolis teacher contract was approved by the school board on April 17, but until Friday nobody outside the district and the union's leadership had seen a copy.
The contract talks this year aroused more interest than normal, in part because critics of the Minneapolis Federation of Teachers alleged that some contract provisions stand in the way of educating kids. But since the deal got roundly critiqued, based on a tentative agreement, no outsiders had seen the actual wording of contract changes.
That changed Friday when the union posted a copy here on its web site. The district said it would soon follow suit. .
The posting of the contract Friday now means that wonks gets the treat of plowing through all 233 pages of the document.
