Changing a Culture: Toward a 30% Increase in Degree Attainment in Stark County, Ohio
Stark Education Partnership
Stark County is the 7th largest county in Ohio. In 2001 the researchers formed a P-16 Compact and began looking at the accomplishment of two goals: raising the high school graduation rate and increasing the number of students going from high school to college. Then as now, it was important for them to know the context of Stark County in Ohio and in the nation. This document contains an update of the data examined in 2001. The remainder of this document focuses on the strategies used in Stark County since 2002 to raise the percentage of graduates enrolled in Ohio colleges. The State of Ohio could make policy changes that would help Stark County and perhaps all counties in Ohio reach a higher percentage of high school graduates enrolled in Ohio colleges.
