When it comes to distance learning in Minnesota, there’s much room for improvement. That was the message from parents and students at a State Capitol House hearing Wednesday. Embar Hanson has two children in charter schools and told lawmakers…

“I have been very concerned about the lack of equity and transparency from our schools that is a result of the lack of expectation and direction come from policies and legislation and the Minnesota Department of Education.”

Hanson says families need to have more input and engagement in the process moving forward. State education officials say they’ll have guidance for Minnesotans on the new school year by the week of July 27th.
