Measuring the Success of Kentucky's Community and Technical College System in Educational Attainment and Advancing Workforce Development
Bissett, William Daniel
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Marshall University
This study examined the educational attainment and income of nontraditional students in the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) and its connection to workforce development efforts in the Commonwealth of Kentucky. The population for this study included first time students between 25 and 64 years of age who attended KCTCS either full-time or part-time during the academic years of 2006-2007, 2007-2008, and 2008-2009. The Kentucky Center for Education and Workforce Statistics provided archival data that included information from this population regarding the type of educational credential earned. The data were analyzed to determine the relationship between the types of credentials and the median income of the students over four years. After analysis, it was determined that the median income of these nontraditional students increased significantly upon completion of an educational credential, with the academic year of 2007-2008 showing a slightly less significant increase than the other two academic years.
