Learning Curve

MinnPost's education reporting is made possible by a grant from the Bush Foundation.

Learning Curve

Beth Hawkins writes about education in Learning Curve. Hawkins has covered a variety of subjects for MinnPost since its launch in 2007, but has a particular passion for reporting on education. In addition to her conviction that education is one of today's most pressing issues on a policy level, she's motivated by her experience advocating for her two sons in great schools and not-so-great ones. 

How well do Minnesota's education programs prepare students to be teachers? It's almost impossible to tell

There are no publicly available indicators showing which schools of education train excellent teachers. Or whether those new teachers actually end up in the classroom.
