2018 Election

2018 Election: Let’s work to elevate the teaching profession

As we look toward the election, and the impact it will have on the future of all Minnesotans, it’s important to ask these questions:

What do we teach young people of color about aspirations? About making a difference? About giving back? About the value of work? About their strengths and talents?
Most importantly, WHO IS GOING TO TEACH them or the generations to come?  How do we attract more change makers and nation builders to the teaching profession?
