Introduction

E-mail Print PDF

Education represents one of the best opportunities to influence positive outcomes throughout the life span. Most educational achievement indicators are closely correlated with employment and economic advancement. Intrestingly, many of the educational indicators for youth in Sacramento County can be viewed both positively and negatively. For instance, the graduation rate in Sacramento County has increased in the last few years, but only 77 percent of high school seniors graduated. The drop-out rate among high school students has decreased, but more than 2,600 left school before graduating.  More than half of Sacramento County graduates go on to college, but a large majority of those attend community college and do not advance to or graduate from a 4 year college. Progress in education must continue in Sacramento County.
