We advocate with a focused and united voice so that local and state policy makers will
understand and support policies and practices that strengthen
Minnesota’s independent schools.

Your Voice at the Capitol

MISF’s strong and trusted voice at the Capitol ensures that independent and private school communities are included in the educational dialogue at the Legislature. As an advocate for independent schools, we promote universal issues to policymakers, while maintaining the integrity of each school’s unique mission. Together with our partner organizations listed below we advocate for school choice, believing that parents have the right to educate their kids in schools which best serve their needs.

National School Choice Week 2017

On Tuesday, January 24, Minnesota parents and students came together at the State Capitol during National School Choice Week to help ensure that every student has access to a good education. Participants attended House and Senate committee sessions to hear testimony in support of the Equity and Opportunity Scholarship Act which will provide parents with resources to select a school of choice in Minnesota, and then attended a rally in the rotunda.
