You Did It: What We Won
This session was historic. The legislature passed a fair and balanced
budget and increased education funding and opportunities for every
student in the state of Minnesota. After 10-years of disinvestments,
the legislature, and the Governor, heard your voices and made
important investments in our state. Governor Dayton signed the
education budget bill into law on Wednesday, May 22. This bill fully
funds all-day kindergarten, increases special education funds by $10
million for 2014-2015 and $30 million for 2016-2017, increases the
amount on the general education formula by 1.5% per year, and invests
$40 million in early learning scholarships.
