New Report Reveals Equity Gaps in Indiana's High School to College Pipeline
Wednesday, July 14, 2021
According to the new 2021 College Equity Report, graduating high school students in Indiana have become more diverse and low-income over the past 10 years but are not equally prepared for the challenges of postsecondary education and are not succeeding at comparable rates.
The new data reveal that while some equity gaps have closed, several student groups are less likely than their peers to be ready for and to complete college, including students of color, low-income students, males and rural learners.
Indiana adopted its “Big Goal” in 2012, that at least 60 percent of Hoosiers would have a quality degree or credential beyond a high school diploma by 2025. With less than four years to go, Indiana’s current educational attainment rate is about 48 percent.
