Minnesotans have the education and skills needed to achieve their goals

From preschool through college, a great education is the foundation of success for Minnesota's citizens and economy. Learning and experiences gained in educational settings lead to a more skilled, productive labor force as well as personal and societal benefits such as higher wages, better health, and lower unemployment.

Responsibility for education spans local, state, and federal government. The state supports access to quality educational opportunities for people of all ages across the state of Minnesota including: early childhood and pre-kindergarten programming, K-12 public schools, and public higher education at universities, colleges and technical colleges as well as through state financial aid.
