R.T. Rybak has been named the new executive director of Generation Next.
He will begin his duties at Generation Next on January 2nd after completing his third term as mayor of Minneapolis. Rybak has been a member of the Generation Leadership Council since the group’s founding in 2012.
“Improving education for all children is clearly the civil rights issue of our time, and there is almost no region in the country that has to close more of a gap than Minneapolis–Saint Paul,” Mayor Rybak said. “We clearly face a crisis, but it can also be our greatest opportunity.”
