ST. PAUL, Minn. Feb. 15, 2018 – Education Minnesota endorsed Dean Phillips' campaign for the U.S. House of Representatives.

"Education Minnesota is proud to endorse Dean Phillip's campaign for Congress because he wants the best for Minnesota students, as we do," said Denise Specht, president of Education Minnesota. "Deans knows every child can succeed, but only if they get the supports they need both at home and at school. We look forward to working with him to prepare every Minnesota student for a successful life."

A committee of local educators from Minnesota’s 3rd Congressional District interviewed Phillips, a Democrat, during the endorsement process, which included approval from the political action committees of the American Federation of Teachers and the National Education Association.
