Achievement Gap
Kristy Snyder and Mike Crhistenson, MCTC

Minneapolis Community and Technical College (MCTC) has partnered with the Minneapolis Public Schools to provide a much better path to post-secndary education and employment for disadvantaged students.

Kristy Snyder is the Dean of Academic Foundations at MCTC.  Her colleague, Mike Christenson, leads the college's partnership efforts.   Together, they will outline a plan and a program  for closing the achievement and employment gaps that have plagued the households and neighborhoods served by MCTC.

Snyder believes that strengthening career and technical pathways, from K-12 to college, will bring the job opportunities needed in these communities.  Christenson will demonstrate that Minneapolis employers, led by Hennepin County, are preparing to place those who choose such pathways.
