A massive effort in recent years to increase the nation’s number of college graduates has had only minimal and perhaps negative results, according to a new report by the Harvard Graduate School of Education.
Declining graduation rates have diluted the effectiveness of college, the study suggests.
Only about 20 percent of two-year college students graduate on time, compared to 56 percent of four-year students. Both numbers are called “alarmingly low” by the report’s authors.
From the report:
“College for all” might be the mantra, but the hard reality is that fewer than one in three young people achieve the dream.
Take a look at the report itself here.
