The Truth About Our Failing Schools: Reclaiming the Minnesota Miracle

A New Report from the Ciresi Walburn Foundation for Children

As we marked our 20th anniversary this fall, we held a roundtable discussion on how we can close the opportunity and achievement gaps for children and youth of color. More than 30 education funders and thought leaders took part in this robust conversation about Minnesota’s schools, national and local failures and successes, and opportunities to spark action.

The loud and clear message?

At both the state and local levels, there is a massive need for systems change. It’s time for another Minnesota Miracle.
