Breaking: New Census Report on Educational Attainment #EducationalAttainment
The United States Census Bureau yesterday released Educational Attainment in the United States: 2015. The study provides a summary of the state of education in our nation. It provides a wealth of useful information. You can peruse the study here.
Concerning the educational attainment of people with disabilities, the study concluded " Adults who reported a disability had lower levels of educational attainment compared to those without a disability. Seventy-nine percent of adults who had a disability had at least a high school diploma while 90 percent of those without a disability had completed a high school education or more. In addition, the percentage of those who had completed a bachelor’s degree or more was about twice as large for those without a disability compared to those with a disability. Thirty-five percent of adults without a disability held at least a bachelor’s degree compared to 17 percent of adults with a disability."
In other words, we still have a long way to go!
The report also contains data on educational attainment by race, gender, Hispanic origin, and Nativity status. Your thoughts?
