Educational disparities still plague Minnesota students

 

October 14, 2019

Just 37% of low-income students are proficient in math and reading.

The Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis has just released a comprehensive report on the performance of Minnesota's K-12 schools in preparing our children for their futures.

On average, Minnesota schools perform well compared with other states. Unfortunately, those averages mask some of the worst educational disparities in the nation. If you are a low-income white Minnesotan or a Minnesotan of color, whether your children attend a traditional or a charter school, chances are high that they are not getting the education they deserve.
