Big Surplus. Bigger Choice.

We can’t keep asking schools to do more and more with less and less.

One day, people will look back...

at how we chose to spend Minnesota's record $9.3 billion budget surplus. Were we big enough to reverse decades of underfunding our schools — and our future? Did we cave, once again, to the wealthy few who already don't pay their fair share?

Then there is this:

Did our legislators, in a cowardly effort to escape political heat, do absolutely nothing?

Our students are tomorrow's leaders, tomorrow's difference makers, tomorrow's everything.

Please, speak up for fully funded schools now.

Yet year after year they face growing class sizes, dwindling mental health support, and cuts to after-school activities. And more. That is, less. What will it be, Minnesota: a historic missed opportunity or another time we stood tall and did the right thing?
