Are We More Likely To Be College Dropouts Than College Graduates?

It’s no secret college graduation rates are dismal in this country as evidenced in Dr. Shaq and the Nation’s Real Dropout Problem by Scott Bittle and Jean Johnson. An excerpt reads:

“The U.S. is graduating a smaller share of our young adults than some of our most successful economic rivals. That endangers the economic future of the people who don’t graduate and it undercuts the country’s economic vigor and potential overall. It’s just not smart — and it’s certainly not fair — to keep sweeping this problem under the rug”.
