Canton and Stark County Continue to Lead State and Nation in Associate Degree Attainment

According to the Georgetown University's Center on Education and the Workforce, while 36% of the 46.9 million new and replacement jobs needed by 2018 will require a Bachelor's Degree, another 30% will require some college or an Associate Degree.[1]
