Generation Next - an Update

At the next Achievement Gap Committee Forum, on December 1st at noon at Mount Sinai Temple in Saint Paul, R. T. Rybak, executive director of Generation Next, will review the progress made in the last year in implementing steps to attack the achievement gap for young people of color. Generation Next is a broad-based partnership representing some of the region's most significant community groups, political leaders, foundations and businesses.

Generation Next’s goals are that every young person: is ready for kindergarten, meets benchmarks in reading by 3rd grade, meets benchmarks in mathematics by 8th grade, graduates from high school ready for college and career, and earns a post secondary degree or certification.
