Parental education

In 2014, 54 percent of all Minnesota mothers of newborns had at least an associate's degree. According to the most recent estimate, 59 percent of all children had at least one parent or guardian with an associate’s degree or higher.

The percentage of mothers of newborns with at least an associate’s degree has been increasing since 2011, although there are large variances by race. In 2014, 64 percent of White mothers of newborns had at least an associate’s degree compared to 10 percent of American Indian and 16 percent of Hispanic mothers. In 2010-2014, American Indian, Black, Hispanic, and Asian (Hmong) children were half as likely as White children to have even one parent or guardian with an associate’s degree or higher.
