MREA is the only advocacy organization for rural Minnesota that puts children first, but it is one of many educational advocacy groups in St. Paul. Some have been around a long time, while others are just emerging.
MREA is launching a series of articles to help members better understand the groups working on educational issues in the state. The purpose is to inform MREA membership, not to promote or criticize any other advocacy group for organizing and being in Minnesota’s educational political arena.
Understanding the political dynamics of these multiple interest groups requires knowledge of these multiple interest groups, who their members are (or where they get their support), their policy interests, and how active they are in pursuing their interests.
