College attendance and graduation in Arizona

A new report by the Arizona Board of Regents shows that college attendance rates have remained static over the past few years. The report did show that college attendance has improved among some minority students, but they still lag behind white or Asian students. If educational attainment trends stay on their current track, only 17.2 percent of today’s ninth graders will graduate from a four-year college by 2028. We get more from John Arnold, the executive director of the Arizona Board of Regents.
