So weve got to start working on that gap. According to the 2016 report, 56 percent of black and 36 percent of Hispanic adult Iowans have some form of postsecondary training or education compared with 61 percent for whites and 71 percent for Asians in Iowa. Meanwhile, the percentage of Hispanic and black Iowans graduating high school is expected to increase 83 percent and 60 percent, respectively, between 2013 and 2023. http://www.youtube.com/embed/bN1f1rs_q2cThe percentage of white and Asian Iowans graduating high school is expected to increase only 4 and 42 percent, respectively, in the period. If you already know that these populations are underserved, and you know that these populations are growing, we cant meet our educational goals unless we find ways to increase the attainment across the board, certainly, but especially among certain minority groups and among low-income students, Sedrel said. Within the new report lies paths toward a solution, according to Sedrel. When Iowans who did not continue their education past high school are surveyed and asked, Well, why didnt you? more than half say, Well, because it was too expensive, Sedrel said. But, she noted, statistics show only about two-thirds of graduating high school seniors in Iowa apply for federal student aid, including Pell Grants. Which means youve got a third of the students coming out of Iowa high schools who dont even ask for aid who dont even find out what theyre eligible for, Sedrel said. So we know the cost of college is an intimidating factor thats keeping people from going, but we also know that a third of the graduates arent even finding out what they could get. The research also shows shortcomings in Iowas college readiness.
