Frey says current minority college completion rates predict decline in college-educated Americans

a PSC In The News reference, 2015

"The Coming College Decline" - National Journal. 01/14/2015.

This article focuses on the risk of declining educational and workforce achievement in the U.S. given the nation's insufficient response to demographic changes reshaping American society. Specifically, it looks at the potential role of community colleges in increasing the low graduation rates of black and Hispanic students. William Frey says: "A great deal of attention must be paid to increasing minority postsecondary education so that the skill levels of our entire workforce stay competitive."
