About Twin Cities

While Minnesota ranks among the top states on a wide variety of livability measures—including overall educational attainment—student achievement results indicate massive disparities in educational outcomes by race and class. In 2011, Minnesota ranked 49th out of 50 states for four-year high school graduation rates among black or African American students, and 50th among Latino and American Indian students.

By working closely with others across our community, we are driving towards ensuring 15,000 more underserved students of color have educational opportunities that are opening the door to college and beyond. The critical ingredient in that effort is leadership—in classrooms, at great schools, at the school district level, and from citizens and policymakers shaping the public discussion.
