College attainment rates on the rise, reports Lumina Foundation

The college attainment rate rose from 37.9 percent in 2008 to 38.3 percent in 2010, while college attainment for young adults is over 39 percent. The gains, according to the Lumina Foundation, are small but promising.

Second, Lumina will help colleges and states develop new business and finance models that will lead to higher levels of college attainment.
