Help Keep Great Teachers in Minnesota Classrooms

MinnCAN started this petition to Minnesota State House

Minnesota is one step closer to keeping its greatest teachers in the game. The House Education Reform Committee passed H. F. 1870, which would use Minnesota’s new statewide teacher evaluation system to protect high-performing teachers from layoffs.

Today, decisions about who to hire, promote or even lay off when faced with budget deficits are based solely on seniority, with little attention paid to teacher performance.

This bill is an important first step to using our new teacher evaluation system to reform our staffing structure for Minnesota educators.

The new evaluations provide school leaders and districts with trusted information on who their top teachers are, but we need to connect it with commonsense reforms to Minnesota’s teacher tenure law to make a true difference for our kids.

The bill is headed to the House Floor for a vote at any minute. Tell your representative to vote yes today!
