God damn teenagers: they're going to (community) college in record numbers. Also they're finishing high school in record numbers, because why not?
40% of 18-24 year-olds are now enrolled in college, which is higher than ever, although the increase is 100% due to a rise in community college enrollment. And 85% of those same kids are finishing high school, the highest rate ever. And more men are enrolled in college than ever, and more whites are enrolled in college than ever. Blacks and Latinos are both slightly below their all-time enrollment highs, but Latinos are finishing high school in record numbers.
Damned if I can think of a good angle on this.
