The decisions state legislators make affect your classroom, school and profession. State funding dictates what districts can do about class sizes, special education caseloads, even the condition of your building.


2023 EdMN legislative agenda


Education Minnesota announced the endorsements of 69 candidates for the Minnesota Legislature on Wednesday, including four members of the union. 

Education Minnesota’s endorsement process relies on the educators who work every day in schools across Minnesota. They meet with candidates, review candidates’ written answers to educators’ questions and make recommendations to the board of the Education Minnesota Political Action Committee for a final vote.


Republican nominee for Minnesota governor Scott Jensen wants to convert low-performing public schools to charter or private schools, ban so-called “critical race theory” and crack down on truancy with the help of law enforcement.


For his unwavering support of students and their educators through his first term, Education Minnesota, the largest labor union in Minnesota, has endorsed the reelection of Gov. Tim Walz.
