The Page Amendment

The Page Amendment 3334 1459 Kate Kinkade

Way to Grow is proud to endorse the Page Amendment in partnership with Our Children MN.

According to a 2019 report published by the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis, Minnesota students of color, as well as families with lower incomes, face one of the largest achievement gaps in the nation.  

The Page Amendment is a proposed amendment to the Minnesota State Constitution that would provide all children with a civil right to quality public education. Named after former Minnesota Supreme Court Justice Alan Page, The Page Amendment would read: 

 “All children have a fundamental right to a quality public education that fully prepares them with the skills necessary for participation in the economy, our democracy, and society, as measured against uniform achievement standards set forth by the state. It is a paramount duty of the state to ensure quality public schools that fulfill this fundamental right.” 

Several attempts have been made to close the education gap in Minnesota over the last several decades, but the Page Amendment is the first to establish quality public education as a civil right.  

Closing the achievement gap in Minnesota is at the very core of Way to Grow’s mission. For more information about the Page Amendment, visit
