Helping High Schoolers Connect Degrees to Dollars ♦ Stateline

An article in Stateline, an initiative of The Pew Charitable Trusts, describes the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development's (DEED) outreach teaching students how to access and use education and earnings data. DEED's Graduate Employment Outcomes data tool shows how many graduates are finding jobs, and at what wages. In addition to Minnesota, many states are passing legislation requiring the reporting of student outcome data and other states have created similar tools making data on student outcomes more accessible.
