FREE SPEECH ZONE | Tribute: Melissa Krull, embattled School Superintendent


Recently retired Eden Prairie Schools Superintendent Melissa Krull was honored by scores of parents and professional colleagues on Saturday October 15th for her support of educational equity and integration. A small band of vocal parents — The Braxton Bullies — have opposed the EP School district’s re-alignment of grade school districts and other reforms. Some of them have been caustic, mean and anonymous in local newspapers; facebook presentations like “The Eden Prairie School Board Accountability” and bloggers like “The Activist Next Door.”

But Dr. Krull remains highly admired by a large majority of residents including Eden Prairie’s large Somali Community.
