Report: Low-income, Minority Students Losing Ground At Kentucky Colleges

Low-income and minority students are losing ground at Kentucky’s colleges and universities after repeated funding cuts by state lawmakers, according to the Council on Postsecondary Education’s latest annual report card.

The report showed a three-year graduation rate of 10.4 percent in the 2012-13 academic year for low-income students seeking an associates degree, down from 10.8 percent in 2009-10 and below the overall graduation rate of 12.8 percent.
