Full-service community schools

We all want to advance solutions to help students — no matter what they look like, where they live or how much money their parents make — thrive and lead healthy and fulfilling lives.

Unfortunately, the wealthiest few and their backers are using Minnesota’s gross racial disparities and opportunity gaps to push more standardized testing, narrowing curriculum and privatizing our public schools. And these strategies do nothing to improve educational outcomes for our students.

Full-service community schools offer a better, proven path. Communities from Deer River to Rochester are bringing community services into the school and empowering the people closest to students – parents, educators and neighbors – to transform schools to respond to their needs.
