Minnesota Education Corps
Commission AmeriCorps State FY 2011
Only 60% of Minnesota 8th graders are proficient in math, representing a critical roadblock to high school graduation and future economic success. Minnesota Math Corps is designed to be part of the statewide solution to this crisis by providing trained tutors to help 4th-8th graders achieve math proficiency. Members use a research-based curriculum and tutoring strategies to assist students who need an extra boost to bring their math skills up to grade-level standards.
