Story Behind the Curve

While the percentage of young adults with a bachelor’s degree or higher in Maryland has remained relatively stable since 2005, the percentage with some college credits or an associate’s degree has risen dramatically.

While more young adults are pursuing higher education, their fields of study are also changing to adapt to the modern economy. As a result, Maryland has sought to provide new opportunities for youth to achieve higher education or engage in STEM through programs like P-TECH and others.
