Every young person needs a postsecondary credential to thrive in today’s world. Yet, as a nation, we fail to provide too many young people with the education they need to succeed. Millions of young people graduate from high school unprepared for college and careers in today’s global economy.

  • 22% of high school students are not graduating from high school.
  • One-third of students who enter postsecondary education require remedial education before they can earn college credit.
  • Less than half of all college students graduate within six years.
