It's time to start talking about what schools really need to help students lead healthy, successful lives and keep educators in the profession.  

Education Minnesota has introduced legislation that does just that. Our Aim Higher Minnesota Act looks beyond the easy fixes and:

  • Establishes class size limits
  • Fully funds the state portion of special education costs
  • Allows schools to hire enough counselors, nurses, social workers and other student support services to meet students' needs
  • Funds the educator loan forgiveness program so educators can afford to stay in the profession
  • Creates trauma-informed and restorative practices training programs for teachers to disrupt the school-to-prison pipeline
  • Funds professional development for all education support professionals

As educators, we know how to improve our public education system.

But it's going to take more than the Band-Aid approach Minnesota has been using for far too long. We need real and significant investments in our students, public schools and the profession.

If you agree, sign on to this petition and urge your lawmakers to support the Aim Higher Minnesota Act.

It's time to start talking about what schools really need to help students lead healthy, successful lives and keep educators in the profession.

Education Minnesota has introduced legislation that does just that -- the Aim Higher Minnesota Act. I'm writing to ask for your support.

SF3926/HF4382 looks beyond the easy fixes and, among other things:

​- Establishes class size limits
- Fully funds the state portion of special education costs
- Allows schools to hire enough counselors, nurses, social workers and other student support services to meet students' needs
- Funds the educator loan forgiveness program so educators can afford to stay in the profession​
- Creates trauma-informed and restorative practices training programs for teachers to disrupt the school-to-prison pipeline​
- Funds professional development for all education support professionals

It's time to stop the Band-Aid approach to public education. We need real and significant investments in our students, public schools and the profession.

Please support the Aim Higher Minnesota Act!
