Two Years Out: 73% of the Class of 2010 has gone to College


Analysis of figures released by the Class of 2010 StatsNational Student Clearinghouse[1] this week show that 73% of Stark County's graduating class of 2010 has now gone to college. In 2005, Stark's college going rate within two years was 59%.  


The percentage, an aggregate for all 17 public school districts, includes students who wait up to two years to begin college in Ohio and those who enroll out of state. Of the 3,238 graduates who have now enrolled, 2,479 have gone to public institutions and 759 have enrolled at private colleges and universities.


While national comparisons remain difficult, the U.S. Census Bureau cites 70% as a college-going figure for 2009, the latest available. That percentage is based on anyone, age 18 to 24, who completed high school within the year preceding college enrollment.[2]
