Knocking at the College Door: Projections of High School Graduates by State and Race/Ethnicity, 1992-2022. Oklahoma
Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education
The 7th edition of this publication provides updated projections of high school graduates for each year and each state (plus the District of Columbia) through 2022. The profile breaks down the projections by major racial and ethnic groups: (1) American Indian/Alaska Native; (2) Asian/Pacific Islander; (3) Black, non-Hispanic; (4) Hispanic; and (5) White, non-Hispanic. Overall trends include: (1) Peak in the number of high school graduates in 2008-2009, followed by gradually declining enrollments and number of graduates; (2) Highest percentage of growth in the West; and (3) Wide variation in size and make-up of graduating classes. Data for Oklahoma indicates a trend toward increased diversification of public high school graduating classes, and decline of White non-Hispanic graduates, a trend comparable to most states across the country. While much of the rest of the nation is poised to enter a period characterized by much more stagnant growth in the production of high school graduates, Oklahoma's public high schools have been producing mostly declining graduate numbers since 2000. This trend is projected to be reversed for a period leading up to 2009-2010, after which production will fall off again through 2013-2014. Beginning in 2014-2015, mostly uninterrupted growth is projected to resume through the remainder of the projection period. (Contains 4 figures.)
