Equity in Education and Job Connection Grant Program: 2017 Annual Report
MetadataShow full item record
Minnesota’s citizens are some of the most educated in the country, across all age groups. Minnesota ranks second nationally in the number of adults, ages 25-64, with an associate degree or higher. The state’s overall high educational attainment ranking, however, masks severe disparities between racial and ethnic groups. Given that Minnesotans of color are comprising a larger share of the state’s population each year, the state’s changing demographic profile requires the state to begin reducing educational attainment racial gaps, or else the state’s economic future will be threatened.
