Tomorrow’s Minnesota is a state where no matter how humble your background, you receive an excellent public education. It’s a state whose students graduate with the skills to compete globally, propelling our economy to new heights.
Today’s Minnesota is a state where the children most dependent on our public schools all too often get the least effective education. It’s a state with a wide achievement gap, where our low-income and minority children enter our schools behind, fall further behind as they advance, and drop out of school with alarming regularity, failing to learn even the most basic skills a 21st century job requires.
What stands between today and tomorrow’s Minnesota? It’s you.
MinnCAN (the Minnesota Campaign for Achievement Now) is building a new movement of concerned citizens advocating to fundamentally reform our public schools through smart public policies.
We will not rest until every Minnesota child, regardless of race or class, has access to a great public school.
