Stark Districts Are Impacting the Cycle of Poverty and Low College Enrollment

There is a significant lifetime earnings advantage for college graduates compared to high school graduates. Those who earn a bachelor's degree can expect to earn about $2.27 million over the course of their lifetime[1], nearly twice the amount earned by those with a high school diploma.[2] This becomes especially concerning when considering the link between poverty and education attainment. Stark County districts, however, are impacting the cycle of poverty and low college enrollment. 

National Student Clearinghouse figures show that 70% of the Stark's class of 2012 enrolled in college within two years after graduation. The state average was 59.3%. Further, most Stark school districts - subdivided by poverty level -also individually exceeded the state average for their category. The state averages come from an analysis released on Jan. 20th by the Ohio Education Policy Institute (OEPI) of 2015 Report Card Data for the Ohio School Boards Association, Buckeye Association of School Administrators, and Ohio Association of School Business Officials.[3][4]
