How are we doing l.jpg

How are we doing?

  • All but two of Georgia's 18 public four-year colleges and universities graduate fewer than half of their students after six years. Six of the schools graduate fewer than a quarter of their students, research by the Education Trust, a Washington nonprofit advocacy group for students in k-12 and post-secondary schools

  • 463,269 students dropped out of school within a 4 year period of time (2003-2004)-Governor’s Office of Student Achievement

  • 65.5 of students graduated with a regular diploma in 2003-2004-Governor’s Office of Student Achievement

  • 4 out of 10 graduates say they have been inadequately prepared to enter college or hold down a job- Stateline.org


Postsecondary drop outs l.jpg

POSTSECONDARY DROP-OUTS

Most students do not flunk out of college!

Reasons for leaving postsecondary:

•Lack of direction

(leading to lack of progress)

•Increasing student loan debt

(2/3 of financial aid is loans)

  • Dr. Ken Gray, Penn State University

The facts are…..

In 1959, 20% of workers needed some postsecondary education and/or training. Today about 65% of the jobs require education/training beyond high school.

By 2010 42% of new job growth will require a vocational certificate or diploma, an associate’s degree or more.

Job openings requiring college degrees will grow faster in the next decade than jobs requiring no degrees. 70% of the fastest-growing jobs will require more than a high school education; 40% at least an associate’s degree.

The real incomes of those with only a HS education has remained stagnant over the last 25 years, while those who haven’t completed HS have actually declined.
