The Achievement Gap

Minnesota likes to pride itself on being at the top of many lists. But one list we are unfortunately near the top is the academic achievement gap. What does this mean for our state's economy and what can be done to help shrink the gap? We will be joined by Big Brothers Big Sisters Twin Cities CEO Michael Goar. A former Interim Superintendent of Minneapolis Public Schools and executive director of Generation Next, Goar brings expertise and a passion to our topic.
