Today, Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton signed Senate File 40 into law. SF40 is the result of bipartisan work and compromise, resulting in a rigorous, high-quality, alternative pathway to teacher certification. Governor Dayton was joined by Education Commissioner Brenda Cassellius and a bipartisan group of Legislators. Afterward, Dayton spoke to Minnesota schoolchildren.
