The 10 Smartest Counties in Minnesota
More than half of Minnesotans have some sort of education beyond high school. However, there's an education goal we have not yet reached. Apparently, there's a goal that at least 70% of Minnesotans ages 25-44 will have some type of education beyond high school by 2025. This is according to Lumina Foundation.
If they want to hit that 70% goal by 2025 they're going to have to do something about the continuing increase in college tuition, but that's something we can talk about another time. The Lumina Foundation says that currently, 59% of Minnesotans have education beyond high school, which is above the national average of 51.9%.
This ranking of the 10 smartest counties in Minnesota is based on the percentage of the population that has an associate's degree or higher based on findings from the Lumina Foundation.
