MSBA Participates in Governor Walz and Lt. Governor Flanagan’s Roundtable on Child Centered Government

This morning Minnesota School Boards Association (MSBA) participated in a small roundtable discussion with other early education and childcare stakeholders to discuss how working together to invest in Minnesota’s youngest students can increase equity and bridge the opportunity gap for children, youth and families.

Governor Walz and Lt. Governor Flanagan recently reintroduced the Children’s Cabinet initiative and their priority to ensure all children have a healthy start, access to affordable and quality childcare and early education, access to mental health supports and stable housing. The goal is to center government on children and families and want to work with organizations, like MSBA, to “come together and help propose and enact sound and transformational investments and policies.”

Minnesota’s Children’s Cabinet is an inter-agency partnership the Governor has charged with helping make Minnesota the best place to raise a family — for everyone.
