U.S. may be losing global edge, study suggests
According to a new report, America’s competitive edge in higher education is waning. The U.S. has formidable rates when it comes to students entering postsecondary education, but declining rates of actual degree attainment. In 2002, the U.S. ranked only 13th in the percent of the population that enters postsecondary education and then completes a bachelor’s degree or higher.
Much of the decline seems to be taking place in a number of major states with large populations. EducationNews.org reports on the study, conducted by the University of California, Berkeley.
