College Graduation Rates

Unfortunately I did not see any references to the source of data for this article -- it's a pretty startling statistic.

Just 54 percent of students entering four-year colleges in 1997 had a degree six years later -- and even fewer Hispanics and blacks did, according to some of the latest government figures. After borrowing for school but failing to graduate, many of those students may be worse off than if they had never attended college at all.
