Hopkins Superintendent Dr. Rhoda Mhiripiri-Reed joined members of the Golden Valley Business Council for a conversation about public education and about Hopkins Public Schools. With her are Gary Aiken (Tonka Financial), Becky Bakken (Discover St. Louis Park), and Tim Cruikshank (City Manager, Golden Valley.) Over 90% of children in America attend public schools, so their success is pivotal for the future of our country. The Hopkins Public Schools serve seven municipalities with just under 7,000 students attending one of nine schools. Dr. Mhiripiri-Reed hopes to move Hopkins from "great" to "world class." More than 20 school districts are seeking a referendum this Election Day, including Hopkins with three questions on the ballot.
