by Sabrina I. Pacifici on June 12, 2013

“The Condition of Education 2013 summarizes important developments and trends in education using the latest available data. The report presents 42 indicators on the status and condition of education, in addition to Spotlights that look more closely at 4 issues of current interest. The indicators represent a consensus of professional judgment on the most significant national measures of the condition and progress of education for which accurate data are available…As this year’s Condition shows, in 2012, about 90 percent of young adults ages 25 to 29 had a high school diploma, or its equivalent, and 33 percent had a bachelor’s degree or higher. As in previous years, annual median earnings in 2011 were higher for those with higher levels of education—for example, 25- to 34-year-olds with a college degree earned over twice as much as high school dropouts.” U.S. Department of Education, Institute of Education Sciences, May 23, 2013.
