The Saint Paul Public School District has proven to be a strong leader in educational reform and student achievement. Recognizing that these are the future employees of our members, we are committed to seeing that our young men and women emerge from the public education system as the leaders we know they can be.–Matt Kramer, President of the Saint Paul Area Chamber of Commerce (Click here to read more... )

Like so many in St. Paul, we want what's best for our kids. We join the business community in recommending a yes vote on the district's "Strong Schools, Strong Communities" referendum.

While there remains much work to be done, our children in the Saint Paul Public Schools have made promising progress over the past six years which simply cannot be sustained without the resources this referendum generates.–Councilmember Carter's Letter to Insight News (Click here to read more... )
