It’s the start of a four-day weekend for students across Minnesota as teachers gather for their annual convention.
Dooher says teachers are under a lot of pressure these days with budget cuts. Overall, he says the conference is designed to give teachers support in one of the hardest jobs ever.
More than ten-thousand teachers are expected to gather at St. Paul RiverCenter today and tomorrow for their annual Education Minnesota conference.
President Tom Dooher says they’ll tackle a variety of issues like closing the achievement gap and bullying.
