Teacher Licensure Hearing
Minnesota Senate Building
95 University Ave. W., St. Paul, MN 55155
For far too long, Minnesota’s broken licensure system deterred high-quality teachers of color from serving in classrooms that need them the most. But after years of hard work, state legislators recently overhauled this system to ensure that students had more access to diverse teachers.
Unfortunately, a bill has been introduced in the Minnesota legislature which threatens to halt the progress we’ve made meaning that students could once again lose out on great, diverse teachers because of licensure barriers.
Take a few seconds right now and tell your state legislators to oppose HF 1329/SF 1557 because it will push effective, experienced educators out of the classroom!
