Yesterday I posted some of the good news about Indiana's rankings. Today we will list the areas we could improve as a state.
Early Childhood Education
39th out of 50 states and DC on participation of 3 year-olds in pre-kindergarten
48th out of 50 states and DC on participation of 4 year-olds in pre-kindergarten
High School to College Pipeline
28th in high school graduation rates
49th out of 50 states on high school readiness for college
Now for the good news regarding college....
16th out of 50 states on the college enrollment rate of high school graduates
19th out of 50 states on their college graduation rate of enrollees
Who can explain this anamoly? We are next to last in high school graduates prepared for college, but we are 19th in graduating those who enroll!
