Rebecca is running for reelection as an at-large candidate for the Minneapolis School Board. She sat on the PTA of the Minneapolis Public Schools that her children attend and has volunteered for many years with her church. First elected to the school board in 2010, Rebecca believes that every child deserves a safe and nurturing environment. She works to address the achievement gap in Minneapolis schools; while improvements have been made, there is still a lot of work to do to continue to close the gaps. She has championed a balanced budget, strategic long term development, and supported a new behavior standards policy for Minneapolis schools to continue to work towards educational equity in her city.
