Declining enrollment and the state funding disparity between rural Minnesota schools and Twin Cities schools continues to cause operational challenges for our district's schools. State mandates threaten the ability of our schools to provide high quality education at reasonable funding levels. Steve strongly favors reducing state mandates for schools, simplifying the state's funding formulas to make them easier for all to understand, increasing local school board control, and introducing performance pay for teachers. He will fight for schools in rural Minnesota -- to bring equity in education funding with the Twin Cities.
