DOE Class of 2011 college enrollment up from 2010

HONOLULU — Fifty-three percent of Hawai‘i’s public high schools’ Class of 2011 enrolled in college for the fall semester following their commencement, an increase of 3 percent over the previous years’ graduating class enrollment, according to a study released May 16 by the Hawai‘i P-20 Partnerships for Education and the state Department of Education.

“The College and Career Readiness Indicators report is an important tool that provides the information we need to see if our state is improving the college-going rate of our public high school students, and to gauge progress on their assessments and college remediation rates,” said in a press release Karen Lee, Executive Director of Hawai‘i P-20 Partnerships for Education.

 DOE Superintendent Kathryn Matayoshi said the report is “encouraging” and the upward trend in college-going rates is a positive sign for the state’s economic outlook.

“The College and Career Readiness Indicators report provides school administrators and educators with a diverse set of data that will help inform critical decision-making to ensure our graduates are ready to enter college and compete in a global workforce,” Matayoshi said.
