Big Bold Goal 3

Minnesota educator workforce reflects student demographics

Through partnerships, education, and community advocacy, we can work to develop state policies and funding frameworks to increase the number of teachers of color and American Indian teachers in Minnesota and attract and retain a diverse teacher workforce.

We believe in the interconnectedness of community to change systems and the world.

Racially diverse, effective teachers are needed

Active Initiatives


TeachMN2020 is a campaign to increase the number of teachers of color by 2020. Through partnerships and collaborations, we are developing unique tools that will increase awareness, outreach, and support of prospective teachers of color and American Indian teachers.

A new interactive website, Imprint, creates a space for public engagement to elevate the teaching profession, particularly within communities of color. Another tool in development includes the use of cutting-edge cloud-based technology to support a statewide “strategy mapping” of Minnesota’s education environment for licensed pK-12 teachers.
