Charlie | NAZ Scholar at Plymouth Christian Youth Center, Releasing Butterflies in the Garden

"I don't like science (not at all), but this was fun! The caterpillars hatch out of an egg; they turn into larva. They make their chrysalis and they hatch ... well you have to wait 5 to 15 days. I can't wait to get to high school science and do some of that mad scientist stuff!" #NorthFaceFriday

Achievement Gap

The Achievement Gap

Minnesota has one of the worst educational achievement gaps in the nation. This is an urgent crisis because children of color are no longer in the minority in many areas of our state. To maintain a highly educated workforce that attracts and keeps businesses in Minnesota, we cannot wait to close the achievement gap. This is why NAZ exists. This is our promise.
