MinnCAN advocates for the success of every Minnesota student, from pre-K through college and career. We improve policy to help all students thrive and share promising practices and stories to demonstrate that all kids CAN succeed.
Within our community, students, parents and administrators alike have been asking the same questions for years: How do we close the achievement gap? How do we put an end to the school to prison pipeline? Is it possible to achieve those goals? As an individual, and especially as a young person, I didn’t always feel like I had a platform to engage in these conversations, until I found a local coalition that helped connect me and elevate my voice.
