We are currently seeking members to organize a series of education-related events, likely this fall. In the course of their recent work, members of the Tiered Teacher Licensure Review Group
found great interest in publicly examining education policy, and recommended hosting a series of informational forums. Join us if you're interested in helping to put this together.
Members will be asked to organize an event series that explains how Minnesota education policy works, inviting outside speakers to cover topics such as:
- How is the teaching profession currently structured in Minnesota? What are the advantages and disadvantages? What are similarities and differences between teaching and other professions? What might be learned by such comparisons? What future innovations might better support teachers in supporting student learning?
- How is education policy developed, implemented, and evaluated in Minnesota? How does Minnesota's process compare with other states?
The purpose of these events would be primarily informative. If the forums help to highlight issues that should be addressed, that information could be helpful to the Policy Advisory Committee
This will be a member-organized effort. Members will keep in touch with me and Membership and Engagement Manager Cat Beltmann, but they will be asked to take on the responsibilities of organizing the series. Member-organized groups expand the Citizens League's capacity to be active in many policy areas. This group is open to all members with all kinds of experience with education -- you do not need any particular type of expertise to participate. You do need to be a member to participate. (And you're welcome to join
in order to do so!)
Interested in participating? Have questions?
Contact me at alevensonfalk[at]citizensleague.org or 651-289-1072. Please get in touch by Friday, June 22.
