The Minneapolis Foundation invests in proven and promising strategies to ensure every student receives the excellent education needed for individual and regional prosperity. TFA is one of many efforts that, together with the Robins, Kaplan, Miller & Ciresi Foundation for Children, we have funded to support high quality teaching in the classroom, a critical factor in student achievement. In addition, The Minneapolis Foundation– through grants and civic leadership activities – promotes early childhood learning, increased family and community involvement, and ensures every public school student in Minneapolis receives an enriching academic experience.

Questions will be taken during the event from the studio audience and online viewers. We look forward to an insightful dialogue on this approach and other strategies for closing the achievement gap and preparing our students to compete globally.
