Minnesota Democrats know that no matter where we live or how much money we have, we all want our children to have access to quality public education.
Governor Tim Walz and Minnesota Democrats passed an education bill that made historic investments in Minnesota’s public schools. Minnesota Republicans voted against the bill.
These public education investments will help to reduce class sizes, address shortages of mental health counselors, psychologists, social workers, and nurses in Minnesota schools, and recruit and retain teachers.
Increased education funding will also help to address financial constraints on school budgets and provide flexibility for districts to allocate resources where they need them most. And tying funding to inflation will provide districts with much-needed stability to plan for the future.
Our communities deserve strong public schools.
