Protect our public schools
Sign our petition to call on Gov. Tim Walz and state legislators stave off cuts to school funding, address the disruptions to education caused by COVID-19 and start making strategic investments to fully funding welcoming schools that work for everyone! Take action
Give schools flexibility on standardized tests
Email state officials urging them to request flexibility on MCA testing so our state’s public schools can focus instead on student needs and targeting the resources to address them. Standardized tests have never been valid or reliable measures of what students know and are able to do, and they are especially unreliable during a global pandemic when they can’t be administered safely or with any consistency across the state.

Build a Better Minnesota: Support Governor Walz's budget
Email your lawmakers urging them to support Gov. Tim Walz's budget proposal, which would raise about $2 billion in new revenue from the wealthiest and largest corporations and increase education spending by $745 million to help students catch up from COVID-19 disruptions and start reimaging our public education system.
Support the Education Support Professionals Bill of Rights
Everyone who works in public education deserves the same things. Unfortunately, most education support professionals don't get enough respect in their schools, fair compensation for their work or safe working conditions. Sign our petition to urge the Minnesota Legislature to pass legislation benefitting these professionals.
