Most L.A. students who get to college don’t graduate

A new study has put an exclamation point on a problem that Los Angeles Unified School District officials already acknowledge: too few of their graduates — about one in four — are earning college degrees.

About 70% of Los Angeles high school graduates enroll in two- or four-year colleges, but only 25% graduate within six years.

Although the district has achieved record graduation rates, skeptics have questioned whether all those graduates are fully prepared for higher education.
