The state's newly enacted education funding bill includes a "historic investment" in efforts to boost the number of teachers of color in Minnesota, but there were missed opportunities, too, a chief advocate for the cause said Friday.
"We're in a deep hole, and it's going to take decades to get out of this hole," said Paul Spies, legislative action team lead for the Coalition to Increase Teachers of Color and American Indian Teachers in Minnesota.

"It's really important to get your mind open and hear other people's stories," Betty Garcia said. 

A state budget that works for St. Cloud

A state budget that works for St. Cloud
Rep. Dan Wolgamott
The 2021-2022 Minnesota state budget is the most important in a generation as we work to help Minnesotans recover from the historic challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
I’m working with the Walz Administration and my legislative colleagues to pass a budget that fills the needs of St. Cloud. Last week, I held a Budget Listening Session with Revenue Commissioner Robert Doty to get direct feedback from my constituents on their priorities to help shape my decisions regarding investments in our state budget. 
Rooted in what I am hearing from the people I represent, I’m proud to support the Minnesota House budget proposals that include significant ongoing investments in education, prioritize economic assistance to those most impacted by COVID-19, and create a safer and more secure state for all Minnesotans. There are several different bills that make up our complete budget proposal, with legislation focused on early childhood, E-12 and higher education, taxes, labor and industry, workforce and business development and public safety.

Editorial Roundup: Minnesota

Minneapolis Star Tribune. March 7, 2021.

Adding diversity to state teaching ranks is a critical goal

Studies show that students of color benefit, which could help close stubborn achievement gaps.

Audit: Program to diversify state's teachers lacks reliable data

Most who graduated after getting funding became teachers, however.
