The Minnesota Board of Teaching is in contempt of court. A Ramsey County judge made the unusual order on Friday, July 1, saying her “patience is at an end.”

The contempt order criticizes the board for not following another order from the judge six months ago. On December 31, 2015, Judge Shawn Bartsh blasted the state’s Board of Teaching for suddenly stopping a program that allowed experienced teachers, often from out of state, to get teaching licenses through an alternate method called “licensure via portfolio.” The judge ordered the agency to resume the program, as required by law.
