Education is Top Concern for Minneapolis Voters

A Star Tribune poll of 800 Minneapolis voters, conducted in early September, found that education was the single most important issue in the city.

Although the Mayor of Minneapolis has limited direct control over the city’s school system, the issue took top priority at the first mayoral debate on Monday, September 16th at the Mill City Museum.  The debate, sponsored by numerous education reform organizations including Teach for America, focused on education policy within the Minneapolis school system.  The six mayoral candidates, who took part in the debate, largely agreed on a majority of the issues which included a reduction in standardized testing and a limitation on out-of-school suspensions.
