Through this tumultuous year in Minneapolis Public Schools, an opportunity for real change has emerged through five open seats on the MPS school board. Voting for three of these open seats can be directly impacted by the readers of this local newspaper: former MPS math teacher Lori Norvell running for District 5, plus two at-large candidates, Collin Beachy and KerryJo Felder.
All three of these candidates were endorsed at the Mpls. DFL convention on May 15 and have been endorsed by MFT 59 and the ESP union. Additionally, Lori Norvell has been endorsed by the Stonewall DFL and the MN Senior DFL caucus.
These three, along with two other DFL endorsed candidates for District 1 and 3, have joined forces to form the "Safe and Stable Schools Slate."
While school board races are often of low interest and low information, this particular race has greater import than usual.
