Slowing Enrollment in Kansas Schools Shows Economic Recovery

KSAL StaffMarch 16, 2015

The number of students who enrolled in the Kansas higher education system dropped slightly in 2014, especially among older, non-traditional students which officials say indicates economic recovery.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports the overall enrollment at Kansas public institutions, including community colleges and technical schools, fell 2.5 percent from the 2012-2013 academic year to the 2013-2014. The Kansas Board of Regents met last week to discuss enrollment at the state’s schools, and officials say that a decline in enrollment by older students indicates that adults are moving back into the workforce.

The board also reported that about one-fourth of students who received bachelor’s degrees from Kansas institutions in 2014 had attended three or more institutions on their way to that degree. About a third of graduates attended just one institution.
