ROSEVILLE – This morning, Education Commissioner Brenda Cassellius was in White Bear Lake, visiting the district’s early education program. Commissioner Cassellius toured the program, taking some time to interact with the kids, before sitting down with staff and parents to discuss the state of early learning and implementation of the state scholarships.
