What is Students for Education Reform MN all about?
Telling Our Stories
We're not statistics. We’re students eager to learn and parents working hard to get our kids the education they deserve.
Despite growing support for closing the "opportunity gap," listening to students and parents is often an afterthought.
We know best what changes are most urgently needed to make the system fairer and more successful for everyone.
It starts with telling our stories.
It’s undeniable that students and families of color have historically had to fight for equal education every step of the way.
Even in "progressive" Minnesota, students of color and students living in poverty continue to receive less of every measure of educational quality.
It's hard to change the system alone. But when students and families join together we can make educational institutions and policies more responsive to our needs.
Organizing for Justice
Our members work together to identity local issues of educational injustice. Then we build skills and strategies and launch campaigns to effect change.
We achieve this in so many ways: from legislative advocacy to social media campaigns to direct action. We research, we train, we organize, then we demand concrete changes so our children receive the same great education as other children throughout Minnesota.
