Higher Education Statistics

About a week or two ago, I got an email from the Courant that illustrated an interesting statistic, the national average of students attending higher education (for 2013).  It says 66% of ALL students who graduated in 2013 attended an institution of higher education.

For EO Smith that number was 71% for 2013 and over time we average 69%.

Now, some people will claim we are marginally higher because of our proximity to UConn.

Others might compare our costs to national averages and attribute it to that.

Yet others might look at it and call it an anomaly.
