St. Paul, MN - On Monday, Minnesota House conservatives voted against fully funding Minnesota schools. Under the House omnibus education finance bill, schools could receive over $22 billion in funding.
“All Minnesota kids deserve a world-class education, no matter where they live or what they look like. That’s why it’s so unfortunate that, year after year, conservatives vote against fully funding our schools,” said Joe Davis, executive director of Alliance for a Better Minnesota. “Now, as schools reopen to in-person learning and we work to build back better from the COVID-19 pandemic, we must invest in helping students recover and catch up on learning. But instead of investing in our schools and our recovery, conservatives want to shortchange our kids. Our students deserve better.”
