The United States is the second-highest-ranked country in the world in its overall college completion rate, behind only the UK.
But with the average graduate in the US graduating in just one year, we’ve found that our nation is doing a pretty terrible job of teaching.
While this can be attributed to the huge amount of work we do in the workforce and the high cost of education, there are many other factors that are contributing to the lack of progress in the U.S. We’ve gathered the data to see what is happening in the nation’s college completion rates and see how the education system can help us achieve better outcomes.
The rankings are based on a number of factors, including the number of students who are graduating from high school, the graduation rate, the rate of college enrollment, and graduation rates by race and ethnicity.
We also took a look at the average student age and the average family income.
The data is presented in five different ways: the average number of years students have been enrolled in school, average number and average number in school of the students’ classmates, average amount of credit hours earned by students, average percent of students in the graduating class who received financial aid, and average amount paid by students to the institution where they attended college.
We hope that the data will help shed light on what it is that’s preventing students from graduating and helping to make college more affordable.
