This report has three components: 1) Descriptive measures of educational attainment and income equity (by race and gender) for each of the states. Educational attainment measures are benchmarked against the emphasis that nearly all states have work to do for all their citizens. 2) Diagnostic measures to identify where in the educational pipeline interventions designed to enhance educational attainment might best be focused. 3) A future component consisting of projections of each state’s likely future if interventions are not successful and current attainment levels are applied to projected population mixes.
