for Minnesota’s schools!

Join a Campaign

Out-of-state educators need a clear and fair path to Minnesota classrooms. Tell your legislators, the Minnesota Board of Teaching, the Minnesota Department of Education and Gov. Dayton that you want to open the door to great teachers.

  • Meet the six Minnesota students, educators and parents who will be sharing their education stories and ideas on our blog in 2016.

  • When it comes to strengthening and aligning early learning opportunities for MN kids, we ALL have a seat at the table. Find yours with our new infographic.

  • Our new Teacher Advocacy Toolkit gives educators resources to network with colleagues, learn how our state legislators develop policy and understand the role teachers can play in advocacy.

What you’re saying...
  • Careers in the STEM fields continue to be some of the highest-paying and fastest growing in the nation. Encouraging our kids, especially girls and students of color, to excel in math and science is the first step in ensuring America's innovation and competitiveness in an increasingly high-tech economy.

  • I care about public schools in Minnesota because I believe a good education is key for the personal success of our children and the economic vitality of our state.

  • We all contribute to a child's education, directly and indirectly. Directly, we must support responsible public policy. Indirectly, we must promote a responsible educational culture. In both cases, we need all hands on deck.
