Dialogues event on education

It's a statistic with big implications for Rochester's economy: Seven in 10 high school graduates who enroll at Rochester Community and Technical College need a remedial education course to prepare them for college. The costs to get them up to speed: up to $3 million.

That's the topic of the Post-Bulletin Dialogues community meeting set for at 6:30 p.m. Monday in the Rochester Public Library auditorium. The one-hour event is free and informal, with coffee and snacks offered.

Joining Managing Editor Jay Furst and education reporter Matt Stolle will be Mike Bequette, RCTC's vice president of academic affairs; Dave Weber, RCTC's chief of student affairs and strategic operations officer; Michael Muñoz, Rochester Public Schools superintendent; Brent Bultema, Mayo Clinic director of recruitment; and Jess Ihrke, the Rochester Area Chamber of Commerce's vice president of educational workforce development.
