Increasing College and Career Readiness Access and Attainment in Florida
Increasing College and Career Readiness, Access and Attainment in Florida

Currently in Florida, only 37 percent of adults have an associate’s degree or higher.   However, workforce development estimates indicate that by 2020, 65 percent of jobs in Florida will require some form of postsecondary education and training.  In addition, research shows that there will be fewer jobs available for individuals who only possess a high school diploma.   Increasing the number of students who attain and complete a postsecondary degree is not only critical for individual success but also for the economic stability of the state.
