Summer is upon us, and parents, children and teachers are winding down from what has been an exhausting and fully operational school year—the first since the devastating pandemic. The long-lasting impact of COVID-19 has affected our students’ and families’ well-being and ignited the politics surrounding public schools. All signs point to the coming school year unfolding with the same sound and fury, and if extremist culture warriors have their way, being even more divisive and stressful.
The Education Minnesota Retired Fall Breakfast was held on October 20, 2022 at the St. Paul River Center Convention Center. Approximately 35 individuals attended and enjoyed a delightful breakfast. As of this writing on October 20, there are 19 days until the mid-term elections. AND…EVERY ELECTION IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ELECTION, nevertheless this IS the most significant election in our lifetime-which will impact collective bargaining.
Several guests echoed the undeniable importance of the upcoming election.
