Policy Happy Hour: Fully Funding Public Schools

Education MN President Denise Sprecht

On Tuesday, we met with Education MN President Denise Sprecht and talked about fully funding MN Public Schools. Sprecht and EdMN are tireless advocates for our education system and how it can improve. Among the topics discussed:

  1. How we have the conversations about “Teacher Shortages” and “Teacher Burnout” all wrong.
  2. What fully funding schools would actually look like, to teachers, to students and to parents.
  3. How we can hold legislators accountable to not just agree with funding our schools, but acutally following through.

You can watch the video below. Next month, Rep. Ruth Richardson (52B) will join us to talk about the disparity in suspension rates in school. See you then!
