High Schools in this cohort are part of an important study funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s Institute of Education Sciences as part of work by Midwest Regional Educational Laboratory (REL Midwest). The study aims to better understand the processes and interventions that enhance college-going, college completion, and workforce success.

According to a growing body of research, by 2018, more than 70 percent of jobs in Minnesota will require some form of education past high school.
