I saw this old photo on Facebook today. I love it!
We will be strong, whether we are talking about our economy or our position in the world by having the smartest and best educated kids. Yet, we continue to weaken our nation by slashing funds to schools, teaching rote skills based on broad legislative standards instead of teaching individual creativity, and letting politicians get in the way of what subjects are taught, how they are taught, which textbooks we use and whose education standards we use.
Education is a local issue, and A Strong Minnesota Needs Strong Public Education. It is time for politicians to realize education is an investment in the future and in a strong Minnesota. Let’s treat it like an investment and fund it so that every kid has an opportunity to excel.
