Most people in North Carolina don’t have any education beyond high school. That’s a big problem for the state’s workforce. If we think about the path to higher education as a pipeline, we can find the “leaks” where students often fall out of their journey to a degree or credential.

This is part 2 of 5 in our video series explaining North Carolina’s Leaky Educational Pipeline & Pathways to 60% Postsecondary Attainment with the help of Rebecca Tippett, director of Carolina Demography and co-author of the study.

Editor’s note: EdNC has partnered with Carolina Demography and the Belk Endowment to highlight key concepts from the report, “North Carolina’s Leaky Educational Pipeline & Pathways to 60% Postsecondary Attainment.” The Belk Endowment supports the work of EdNC.
