SAINT PAUL, MN – Mayor Carter released the following statement today in response to the tentative agreement reached between the Saint Paul Federation of Educators and Saint Paul Public Schools:

"I thank union and district leaders for working together to end the strike and resume classes as soon as possible, and I commend our public school teachers, who literally put it all on the line for Saint Paul children every single day.

This fight is the right one; we all know we can and must do better for our children. While the gains won this week will make our district stronger, significant work remains to win the state and federal funding necessary to provide the level of support our children deserve.

I look forward to working with teachers, administrators, and concerned community members alike to fight for that future together."
