My blog discusses the important and complex subjects of college completion, college success, student risk factors (for failing), college readiness, and academic preparation. I will explore the pieces of the college puzzle that heavily influence, if not determine, college success rates.
Secretary Spellings Index on Educational Indicators
In a September 15 press release Secretary Spellings noted that 4 year college completion among adults 25-34 inched forward by 2% from 2000 to 2007. This is a slow pace, and many other nations have surpassed our rate of 31% in the past decade. Some surveys have 9 nations ahead of us and others 15. Until recently the USA lead the world in college completion rates
, in part because of our high level of female attainment.
