The St. Paul Conservatory for the Performing Arts, which is a charter school, also recently paid a large settlement to an employee it had suspended, but released very few details to the public. A bill that would provide more transparency in these situations got its first hearing in the House. The bill from Representative Pam Myhra (R- Burnsville) would apply to employees at schools, charter schools and all other public employees. Support this story and all the stories from The Uptake.
