Minnesota has some of the worst education gaps by race, ethnicity, and socioeconomic status in the nation. As constituents of the state, we need to act now to make a real change for all of our children. The Page Amendment will be a catalyst for transformative changes that will improve educational and economic outcomes for all Minnesotans.
The Page Amendment reads: “All children have a fundamental right to a quality public education that fully prepares them with the skills necessary for participation in the economy, our democracy, and society, as measured against uniform achievement standards set forth by the state. It is a paramount duty of the state to ensure quality public schools that fulfill this fundamental right.”
