Supporter Spotlight: Teachers

Teachers are this week’s Supporter Spotlight!

Minnesota’s teachers have one of the most important jobs in the state which, according to Jessie Begert, a Kindergarten teacher at Andersen United Community School, is now more challenging due to distanced and hybrid learning. To see her point of view on the Page Amendment, learning loss, and education gaps, read her column in MinnPost.


“I can only do so much for my students. To get through this pandemic, and to address the ripple effects it’s causing in education, the housing market, employment and health care, we need to re-examine our priorities as a state. We must prioritize education. We must pass the Page Amendment.”
