In the News… Why Now? Graduation Rates Fall at One-Third of 4-Year Colleges. College Costs Are Up Again Some states say the money they give to colleges and universities should be linked to results.
International/National Scene In the 2006 Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA) comparison, American students ranked 21 st out of 30 in science literacy among students from developed countries, and 25 th out of 30 in math literacy. On the2009 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) math tests, 4 th graders showed no signs of progress for the first time in many years, and 8 th graders tallied only modest evidence of progress. We are not advancing as we must. Source: The White House, Educate to Innovate, http://www.whitehouse.gov/issues/education/educate-innovate http://www.whitehouse.gov/issues/education/educate-innovate
Lumina’s Big Goal To increase the proportion of Americans with high-quality degrees and credentials to 60 percent by the year 2025. 55 percent of Indiana’s jobs will require postsecondary education by 2018. Between now and 2018, Indiana will need to fill about 930,000 vacancies resulting from job creation, worker retirements and other factors. Of these job vacancies, 506,000 will require postsecondary credentials, while only 424,000 are expected to be filled by high school graduates or dropouts.
