Education Minnesota - Park Rapids
Organization: Civic, Community & Religious
Education Minnesota is the leading advocate for public education in Minnesota. Our 80,000 members work in pre-K-12 schools and higher education institutions statewide. They include:
Education support professionals.
Faculty at several university campuses, community and technical colleges.
College students preparing for an education career.
Retired educators who have devoted their lives to students.
Education Minnesota gives “voice” to the issues that affect educators and their students. We make sure our members’ voices are heard anywhere decisions get made that affect public education—whether it’s at the state Capitol, in Washington, D.C., or with local school administrators.
We organize members on a local basis. Education Minnesota has about 440 local unions statewide. Our locals help mentor new teachers, provide professional development, negotiate and maintain work contracts, and much more. Our 140 staff members in 16 offices statewide serve as resources to our locals.
