World's Best Workforce

Under Minnesota Statutes, section 120B.11, school boards are to adopt a long-term, comprehensive strategic plan to support and improve teaching and learning. This plan addresses the following five goals:

  • All children are ready for school.
  • All third-graders can read at grade level.
  • All racial and economic achievement gaps between students are closed.
  • All students are ready for career and college.
  • All students graduate from high school.

Teacher Equity

The legislation also focuses on ensuring all students have equitable access to excellent teachers. Districts are to ensure they have a process in place to examine the equitable distribution of teachers and strategies to ensure low-income students, students of color, and American Indian students are not taught at higher rates than other children by inexperienced, ineffective, or out-of-field teachers.
