Share Of College Graduates In US Hits New High
from Los Angeles Times
In an encouraging sign for the American economy, the share of the U.S. adult population with at least a bachelor's degree kept growing last year, surpassing 30 percent for the first time ever. The Census Bureau, in releasing new data on education and earnings, called it an important "milestone" in American history. As recently as 1998, fewer than one-fourth of people ages 25 and older had completed four years of college or more, the bureau said.
