5 Education Issues to Watch in 2020
In the fall of 2020, the majority of public school districts across the state of Minnesota will ask voters to choose among newcomers and incumbents seeking a seat on their local school boards.
That list includes the state’s third largest school district — Minneapolis Public Schools — where three district seats and one at-large seat will be on the ballot.
These are the types of ballot questions that often get overshadowed by city, county, state and national races — especially during a presidential election year. At the same time, school boards shape education policy, practice and outcomes that’ll impact students across the state.
