Report: Texas Public Universities ‘Dropout Factories’

College students in Texas have just a 40 percent chance of graduating within six years, according to a recent report by a Washington think tank that calls Texas public universities “dropout factories.”

Graduation rates at Texas colleges are below the national average, according to the report, by Washington research group Third Way, which analyzed U.S. Department of Education data. Nationally, college students have a 50/50 shot of graduating within six years, according to the report.
