More than 63 percent of Kentucky’s public high school 2010 graduates have enrolled in college – the highest percentage on record, the Kentucky P-20 Data Collaborative announced recently.
The P-20 Data Collaborative used a comprehensive set of data to calculate the rates, which revealed that of the more than 43,000 public high school graduates in 2010, 63.1 percent enrolled in some form of higher education.
The Kentucky High School Feedback Report includes individual reports for 228 public high schools in the state and is based on 2010-11 college enrollment data, not surveys of students. Reports are not provided for alternative programs, but students from those schools are included in the district-level figures.
“The overall rates appear to show improvements statewide in college-going, which is excellent news,” said Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet Secretary Joseph U. Meyer. “Reports like these illustrate the importance of our education agencies working together as a collaborative to provide actionable information back to schools allowing teachers and administrators to make improvements that will better prepare our future generations to be successful in college.” Read the full story
