College Enrollments of High School Graduates from Mississippi High Schools 1963-64 through 1967-68.
Hutchinson, Jerry R., Comp.; And Others
This study is concerned with assessing the number and percentage of high school graduates in Mississippi in 1963-67 who entered college. Data were secured from the annual reports FALL ENROLLMENTS OF HIGH SCHOOL GRADUATES IN MISSISSIPPI issued for the academic years 1963-64, 1964-65, 1965-66, 1966-67, and 1967-68 by the Board of Trustees of Institutions of Higher Learning in Mississippi. The report analyzes college enrollment trends of the 8 districts into which the state was divided. There is no attempt to differentiate among 2-year, 4-year, in-state, out-of-state, state-supported, or private institutions. Tables indicate by year the number of high school graduates, number of graduates who enrolled in college, and percentage of graduates who enrolled in college from each high school and county within the state. Data are included on 465 public schools and 27 private schools. The report shows that overall college enrollment in Mississippi rose from 49.3% in 1963-64 to 57.4% in 1965-66, but dropped slightly the next two years. (DS)
