Secondary Education Attainment in Memphis Goal

Education is our mission

A city’s economic future is intricately linked to the educational accomplishments of its residents. Memphis is no exception.  Wages over an individual’s lifetime can be predicted by earning a postsecondary credential, such as a college degree or professional certificate. A person with a degree beyond high school is likely to earn higher wages, leading to increased spending and more tax revenue for a city. Educational opportunity is essential to building a stronger economy. Simply put, educational attainment is a pathway to prosperity.
