Enrollment, Persistence, & Completion
Perspective: the college pay-off and income equality College Does Help the Poor from the New York Times
Though a four-year college degree is not for everyone, SAM Partners believe that, to have the greatest career options and economic mobility potential, our graduates will need to complete some form of post-secondary training: a certificate or technical program or a 2-year or 4-year degree program or military training. Studies are reporting that 75% of all jobs will soon require additional training. By preparing our graduates to leave high school college and career ready, they will be prepared to share their talents and skills as part of Spartanburg's robust economy.
With our new data resources we are watching closely the relationship between students' graduation, enrollment, persistence, and ultimately the completion of their post-secondary training.
