ST. PAUL, Minnesota. Nov. 8, 2022 — Minnesotans voted for safe, welcoming and effective public schools for all students this year and reelected Gov. Tim Walz and Lt. Gov. Peggy Flanagan to a second term, said Denise Specht, president of Education Minnesota.
“Minnesota voters returned Gov. Walz and Lt. Gov. Flanagan to office on their promises to give every child access to a fully funded public school and to protect Minnesotans’ freedom to decide if, and when, to grow their families,” Specht said. “Now it’s time for the governor and legislators from both chambers to come together and pass the multi-billion-dollar investment in public schools needed to compensate for inflation, recruit and retain full staffs of educators, provide mental health services to every student who needs them, and give every family the opportunity to send their children to a public school that will prepare them to pursue their dreams.”
Education Minnesota will have additional comments on other races on Wednesday.
