Education Minnesota kicks off community conversations on teacher quality in Rochester


Tue, Nov 12th, 2013
Posted in All Education

ST. PAUL, Minn., Nov. 8, 2013 - A series of statewide conversations on what it takes to recruit, train and support high-quality teachers to serve Minnesota’s students will begin later this month.



The first is scheduled for Nov. 18 in Rochester.



Education Minnesota leaders are hosting these community conversations to start a dialogue on how to improve teacher preparation, recruitment and diversity in the profession. Parents, educators, students, advocates, community leaders – anyone interested in the future of Minnesota public education – are invited to attend.



“We want to hear from people across the state about their ideas to improve teacher quality and better meet the needs of our increasingly diverse student population,” said Education Minnesota President Denise Specht. “Minnesota has great teachers, but everyone can always get better.”



The evening will begin with a 30-minute panel discussion followed by small group conversations. Ideas will be collected and brought to a wider audience in spring 2014. The goal is to use this information and craft new ideas – whether it’s forging new partnerships with organizations or crafting new policies and legislative proposals – to improve teacher quality.



Here’s a listing of the community conversations scheduled so far:



Nov. 18 – Rochester

7-9 p.m.; doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Rochester Community and Technical College

Coffman Center (CF 206/208)

851 30th Ave. S.E. in Rochester



Registration is preferred, but not required. The event is free and open to the public. Visit http://www.educationminnesota.org/community/conversations.aspx to sign up.
