Ohio task force wants more college degrees

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio (AP) — A task force that aims to increase the number of Ohioans with college degrees is convening for the first time.

The 31-member Complete College Ohio task force is led by Ohio Board of Regents Chancellor Jim Petro. The group is charged with finding ways to help a greater number of students plan for, pay for and complete their education.

The first meeting today is being hosted by Bowling Green State University.

The (Bowling Green) Sentinel-Tribune reports that Ohio’s proportion of adults with bachelor’s degrees in the workforce is in the bottom quarter of the states (38th) — typically 5 percentage points below the national average.

Only 26 percent of adults in Ohio hold a bachelor’s degree, compared with the national average of 31 percent.
