Record Numbers Complete Their Education

A report that analyzed record shares of young adult who complete high school, go to college and finish college has been released by the Pew Research Center. For the first time, one-third of the nation’s 25- to 29-year-olds have completed at least a bachelor’s degree in 2012 while a record share of that age group has finished high school. College completion is now at record levels among key demographic groups: men and women; blacks, whites and Hispanics; and foreign-born and native-born Americans.
