Education attainment

Combining diplomas and GEDs, Kentucky is close to national average in high school completion by our youngest adults, but further behind in bachelors' degrees. The results shown come from Census Bureau files showing the average of results from its three most recent annual American Community Surveys.

  1. Susan,

    Do you know if Kentucky's mix of GED versus regular diplomas is very different from the rest of the nation?

    I've read that GEDs don't do nearly as well as regular diploma holders, especially so in postsecondary education, as your statistics show.

    So, if our high school gradution statistics in your post are overly populated with GEDs, that might not be such a good thing.
