Sen. Norm Coleman Praises Passage of House File 2

“Tonight’s House passage of an education reform package aimed at ensuring high quality teachers in the classroom is an important step to improving education for all Minnesota families.  Principals deserve flexibility to maintain the best teachers based on quality, not who wins a coin toss.  Even more valuable is providing pathways for quality out of state teachers to get licensed here to fill demands for skilled specialists.  I urge Minnesota Senate leaders to pass this package and put students first, not their special interest teacher’s union friends.”

-Senator Norm Coleman, Chairman of the Minnesota Action Network
