Advocating for Greater Minnesota Education

MREA is the only organization advocating exclusively for Greater Minnesota education. With a record state budget surplus, the MREA 2023 Platform focuses on significant funding to help attract and retain the staff needed to meet growing student needs while minimizing disparities in education opportunities.

The 2023 Legislative Session begins January 3. MREA will host weekly Advocacy Briefings for MREA members to stay up to date on advocacy issues.

Thank you to MREA for your leadership during this Distance Learning period. Your communication was outstanding. When massive amounts of information were flooding my email box, the MREA communication was clear and very appreciated!

Rachel UdstuenSuperintendent, Spring Grove Schools

I love your information. I can glance at it on my mobile and read just the little bit to be informed. That’s all the time I have for. If it were longer, I wouldn’t read it.

There is a wealth of information which comes out of MREA, and I appreciate having an idea as to what is going on outside of the Twin Cities. I appreciate what MREA does, and the communication has been top-notch.

MREA does a remarkable job and is without a doubt my best source for legislative information and state educational information.
