EDUCATIONFrom cradle to career, Minnesota provides a wealth of opportunities for educational success.
Minnesota is frequently touted as one of the smartest, most well educated states in the nation. Its schools, from preK to college, boast a laundry list of accolades. Our educational opportunities abound, resulting in one of the richest learning environments in the country.
Beginning with public and private grade schools, Minnesota students receive a top-notch education and graduate high school at a rate of 82 percent, on par with the country’s average. More than one in three Minnesota adults aged 25 and older have at least a bachelor’s degree—the 10th highest proportion of a state’s population nationwide, according to the U.S. Census Bureau’s latest American Community Survey. And thanks in large part to advanced education, Minnesota households are also wealthier—the median income is $60,828. That’s about 13 percent higher than the rest of the country.
Every step of the way, Minnesota proves to be a world-class leader in academic standards and outcomes.
