All residents of Minnesota need, at minimum, a high school education. Very few jobs exist for people who do not graduate from high school. However, the loss is not just theirs; to compete economically, our state needs workers with skills beyond high school. Lack of a high school diploma puts an individual at greater risk for poor health, lower lifetime earnings, unemployment and welfare, and prison.
