College tuition costs are skyrocketing. According to a new report, all but one state flunks when it comes to college affordability.
Only California received a passing grade of ‘C-’ thanks to its relatively inexpensive community colleges.
The affordability grade is based on how much of the average family's income it costs to go to college. Low-income families shell out 55% of their take home pay now. That's up from 39% nearly a decade ago.
An Oklahoma State Senator says he will file legislation barring students under 18 from dropping out of school. Democrat Kenneth Corn's measure also would implement a statewide truancy court program, providing every district attorney in the state with a truancy officer.
Corn says reducing Oklahoma’s dropout rate is critical to ensuring future economic growth.
