  •  What's "Anoka-Hennepin?" (0+ / 0-)
    I read accounts of Anoka-Hennepin...
    I used to live in Minneapolis. Minneapolis is in Hennepin County, and Anoka is a suburb.

    But beyond that, I have no idea what this means.

      In the Anoka-Hennepin school district, largely as a result of a system-wide policy of turning a blind eye towards bullying and anti-gay hate speech.  There were several excellent and heart-breaking exposes on it, including this one in Mother Jones.    Due to the publicity, the national outrage, and the resulting DoJ investigation, the situation appears to be improving.
