Minnesota Legislature likely to steer clear of major new investments in schools in 2024

Minnesota schools won $2.2 billion in new funding the last time the Legislature met, but as lawmakers reconvened this week, the 2024 legislative session thus far carries little hope of a splashy education encore.

Restraint instead is the message, and it's been heard by education advocates, who nonetheless plan to continue to push for additional revenue as district budgets are squeezed.

"We educate the children and we won't quiet our voices," said St. Paul Public Schools Superintendent Joe Gothard, who serves as board president of the Minnesota Association of School Administrators.
