Believe in we, Minnesota, coming together to make sure our students receive the well-rounded education they need to succeed.
The benefits of sports and other after-school activities are indisputable. They teach lifelong lessons in leadership, teamwork, and perseverance.
They build self-esteem and confidence. And they create that critical sense of belonging so important in child development.
Studies, as a result, show that students in extracurricular activities miss less school, earn better grades, and graduate at a higher rate.
Plus, it's no secret. Colleges look for students who will be involved and bring something to campus life.
Yet, decades of underfunding our public schools threaten these passionate pursuits. Join us, Minnesota, in making sure that our schools are fully funded and our students fully prepared for tomorrow.
