GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn -- This month's Medtronic Community Partner Spotlight focuses on MinnCAN: The Minnesota Campaign for Achievement Now is an independent education reform nonprofit. They believe that getting state policy right can transform the way we educate Minnesota's children.
MinnCAN believes that all children - regardless of their race and ethnicity or socioeconomic status - should have access to great public schools.
MinnCAN launched in 2011. After two legislative sessions, they have successfully passed six out of seven policies, from alternative teacher certification, teacher and principal evaluations that take into account a number of factors, advancing and increasing access to high-quality pre-K, and helping Minnesota secure $45 million in Race to the Top funds.
