A Georgetown University report earlier this year concluded that Minnesota, Massachusetts and Colorado will lead the nation in the share of total jobs requiring post secondary education.
That’s awesome if you finished college. The reality is some 37 million Americans attended college but never received a degree.
These are folks in Minnesota and around the country that we’ve been concerned about.
The Georgetown report notes, “Post secondary education and training determine access to the middle class. Those with only a high school diploma or less are falling out of the middle class.”
We’ve been reaching out to folks in MPR’s Public Insight Network who’ve told us they’ve taken some college classes or were at least interested in attending college.
Please take five minutes and share your insight. What should we know about students who attend college but don’t finish?
Post something below or use our handy form. Share a story or pass this on to someone you know who’s taken classes without earning a degree.
