The Reimagining Education Conference

Reimagine Minnesota History: A commitment to create lasting equity and excellence in education for all students.

In March 2016, a group of metropolitan superintendents gathered together to discuss the future of education in the State of Minnesota.

Specifically, the superintendents acknowledged that ensuring equity and excellence for all students is the most pressing issue in education today.

They also recognized that the demographic composition of our state was rapidly changing and that Minnesota would have an older, more diverse population throughout the state in the coming years. Our K-12 education system is the foundation for the upcoming workforce yet our educational data and statistics show that schools and districts need to improve all of the educational markers that serve as benchmarks of success in the current educational system.
