The Minnesota P-20 Education Partnership is a voluntary organization made up of the statewide education groups in Minnesota, plus others from government, business, and other private sectors. The Minnesota P-20 Education Partnership works collaboratively to maximize achievements of all students, from preschool through elementary, secondary, and postsecondary education, while promoting the efficient use of financial and human resources. It provides a forum where critical policy issues can be collectively identified and addressed, and where data-driven decision-making structures can be developed and implemented statewide.
In 2007, the Minnesota P-20 Education Partnership charged a working group to define readiness for postsecondary education and the workforce. This is the final report and recommendations of that working group, presented to the Minnesota P-20 Education Partnership in June 2009.
