Letter to the editor: Education system should get old-school in forging obedience

Letter to the editor: This is enough to make a Minnesotan pull up stakes
As a long-time resident of Minnesota, I would like to voice my concern about the budget proposal that recently passed the House and Senate. The tax package includes new taxes that were intended to target high income Minnesotans, but will actually greatly impact small businesses. Small...
