Minneapolis Schools

Minneapolis was Minnesota’s largest school district until recently. Plans had been purposed to annex the district into the smaller adjacent suburban districts, but have gone without hearing. What can the state do to help the district? The answer could be in restructuring operations. Focusing on key policy questions like; “What learning options do we offer? How much shall we spend? Who should run those schools and programs? How well are they doing? What happens if they do well or not-well?” would be the core considerations. Allowing the district to redesign their performance-agreement arrangement and allowing for innovation in the classroom based on personalized learning could fuel leaps in progress.
