EdAllies Community Survey: Education Needs During the COVID Crisis
EdAllies works to remove barriers facing Minnesota students, families, and the schools that serve them. Right now we are in unprecedented times, and we want to hear from you about what you're experiencing, what your concerns are, and what your hopes are to inform our advocacy over the next several months.

As always, our model is built on partnership. We are eager to understand the daily concerns of education stakeholders so that we can support policy change at the state level, bringing all of our tools to the table: storytelling, advocacy, coalition-building, research, and more. Our work starts with understanding your needs, and the urgency of the moment prompts us to cast a wide, real-time net. We appreciate you sharing your thoughts, and encourage you to reach out to our team with questions. Email Andrea Roethke, aroethke@edalliesmn.org, and we will follow up ASAP.
