Legislation that would change how public education quality is addressed has been reintroduced at the state Capitol. The bill, also known as The Page Amendment, would change Minnesota’s constitution to state that children have a fundamental right to quality education. Officials in the House Committee on Education Policy are sponsoring policy that would bring that proposed change to the 2022 general election ballot. To amend the state constitution, both the House and Senate would have to approve it by a simple majority before it is ratified by voters in an election. The issue, put on hold by the COVID-19 pandemic, would allow families to address their issues with the quality of public education in court. Despite some support, the ballot bill has no scheduled committee hearings and no companion in the Senate.
