"When you first start out, it seems like this impossible journey," says Steffl. "As a high schooler at Park Center, it didn't seem like I could be working on these amazing projects, but you just take one step forward and then another step forward and eventually you get there."

“It’s just cool, because I get to use a gun,” said Stephanie Petsilis, 17, who shoots for Wayzata High School.
I spent a day at this event, and it was the most fun I've ever had at a high school sporting event. It had more of the feeling of a festival event or outdoor concert than a tournament. I am a proud supporter of 2nd Amendment rights, and have been doing my part to protect them in D279. Having a sport like this be deemed "cool" is a fine way to help make American history come alive so they can learn the truth and importance of a part of the Bill of Rights that too many educators do their best to censor or disparage.

Adios y gracias, "Maria". I grew up watching you and the rest of the gang. What an amazing legacy to retire from after 44 years.
Thank you to my friend Rep. Eric Lucero for the following summary of the special session:

A $17.23 billion education spending plan materialized out of a special session. Rep. Jenifer Loon (R-Eden Prairie) and Sen. Chuck Wiger (DFL-Maplewood) sponsor the law, which increases spending on K-12 and early learning programs by $525 million over the next two fiscal years.

The bulk of new spending in the law – $346.31 million – is dedicated to a per-pupil formula increase of 2 percent in Fiscal Year 2016 and an additional 2 percent in Fiscal Year 2017 and later. Those additional investments bring per-pupil funding from $5,831 in 2015 to $6,067 by 2017.

The law includes more than $95 million in additional funding for several existing pre-kindergarten and early learning programs that target children from low-income families. Those pre-K initiatives receiving a boost include:
• $48.3 million increase to the Early Learning Scholarship program;
• $30.8 million increase to School Readiness program;
• $10 million increase for Head Start;
• $3.5 million increase for Parent Aware, the state’s recently developed rating system for participating early learning child care providers;
• $2.8 million increase for Early Childhood and Family Education programs; and
• $200,000 increase for a parent-child home visiting program.

Whippersnappers! What about cutting a second notch in a 5.25" floppy so you could use the other side (and get ANOTHER 360kb of storage)?

I'm a thoroughly ashamed that D279 is so blindly contributing to this problem. Worse than that, I seem to be alone in this battle. Parents: quit being so bedazzled by your kids' "free" iPads and wake up to the lives they are living (or should I say missing?).

Our district's "shelter in place" policy is dead wrong. Set by people with no expertise. Facing a threat? Escape!
MN has laws similar to CA, where teachers don't have to be union members, but they are still forced to pay a "fair share" fee equal to about 85% of what full union dues are, and they have absolutely no say in what the union does with that money. The outcome of this case could change the face of education in MN, and finally loosen the stranglehold that unions have upon our children's education to return more control to parents and the school boards they elect to represent them.
First, the USDA claimed that "ketchup" was a vegetable. Now Michelle Obama is replacing what little meat is left in school lunches with... yogurt. And only Chobani brand yogurt. Nothing suspicious about that, is there?

Chobani’s fast-track to school cafeterias across the U.S. – with a contract awarded faster than other companies have even gained approval for their products – raises the same question Green Mosters! blogger Kristina Pepelko first raised in 2013: is the National School Lunch Program and the tightened restrictions on school food truly designed to produce healthier students, or are special interest lobbyists driving menu recommendations from Washington, D.C.?
WASHINGTON, D.C. – New York yogurt manufacturer Chobani just landed a massive U.S. Department of Agriculture contract for school lunches after years of lobbying lawmakers and President Obama on its products. The upstate-New York Greek yogurt maker will be distributing its products to schools natio…
