ST. PAUL, Minnesota. April 5, 2019 –Educators and parents know what works in our schools and understand what our students need. But the state has failed to make those needed investments. Minnesota’s share of school funding hasn’t kept pace with inflation—it’s now 18 percent less than 2003 in real dollars. 
Local educators are hosting a public meeting so area legislators can hear from them about what it will take to fully fund public education and give students the schools they deserve.  
What: Public meeting on education 
Who: Confirmed guests include Sen. Jim Abeler; other elected officials invited 
When: 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m., Saturday, April 6 
Where: Andover City Hall, City Council Chambers, 1685 Crosstown Blvd NW, Andover, MN 55304  
Contact at event: Sarah Spleiss, 612-990-3422,
