  2. Align secondary and postsecondary education programs serving students and adult learners.
  3. Align secondary and postsecondary education programs and Minnesota’s workforce needs.
  4. Measure and evaluate the combined efficacy of Minnesota’s public kindergarten through grade 12 and postsecondary education programs.
