Research is the Predicate of Better Policy
Twenty years of study
Minnesota Education Equity Partnership (formerly MMEP) researches race equity in Minnesota education for the sole purpose of bettering the lives of students of color and American Indian students. Every year hundreds of man-hours are contributed by scholars, students and volunteers committed to informing educators, legislators, activists parents and students. The information provided by MnEEP helps everyone make better decisions.
If you don’t find what you are looking for, we are always willing to help.
Are you sitting on vital information?
Most school districts have information that could benefit our research. The Research Collaborative Table (RCT) invites you to consider joining with us in the pursuit of more and better data. Interested? Contact Jonathan at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how you can contribute.
MnEEP has setup a collective Research Collaborative Team (RCT) to begin the process of exchanging ideas, thoughts, and resources to develop the State of Students of Color/American Indian Students (SSOC/AIS) 2015 Report. The SSOC/AIS 2015 report will be a catalyst to inform the attitudes, thoughts, and actions of diverse stakeholders in moving toward increasing racial equity in education. It is our hope that the utilization of this report will strengthen collaborative efforts among diverse leaders in the quest and struggle to making Minnesota’s schools/school districts more racially equitable and inclusive for students of color and American Indian students.
MnEEP recently hired two Ethnic Studies Summer Fellows (DeSean Smedley and Awale Osman read more here) who will be completing “A Case for Ethnic Studies” Policy and Advocacy Brief to help construct and sustain the implementation of Ethnic Studies Programs in K-12 and in Higher Education in the state of Minnesota. We believe that our work on creating “A Case for Ethnic Studies” in Minnesota will help provide all students the skills to self-reflect, critically think, and increase global awareness and empathy for others.
