The increase in the completion rates of public high school, especially among color students, is helping to boost the graduation classes of the nation to larger sizes than expected, but are not projected to avoid a contraction constant that is coming after half of half of 2020s.

High school graduates are on the road from peak in number in the country at 3.93 million with the class of 2025, according to projections published on Tuesday by Western Interstate for Higher Education. That is approximately 4 percent above the graduates of 3.77 million Secondary schools in the class of 2019. After 2025, the projections show graduation classes that decrease in a moderate way in size during a dozen years due in large Measure to the so-called scarcity that it has families that have fewer children in the midst of the economic interruptions of the great recession.

It is expected that graduation classes a diversity is expected significantly in the coming years, continuing a trend already ongoing in which students of Color make up the largest actions of receptors' diploma of those who have in the past, since white students decrease relatively in number. It is also the change in which the numbers of the graduates will be located, since the regions and states experience Different local tendencies in the coming years.

In general terms, projections anticipate the northeast and the west medium publication largely flat numbers through 2025 and then decrease later.

The Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education, or WICHE, releases projections on the next number of Secondary graduates every four years or so. Those responsible for the formulation of policies and senior education officials closely observe the projections of the organization because they offer information about future groups of traditional age students who will enter the university and the workforce.

The graduates were expected to reach their peak at 3.56 million in 2026. The projections caused a significant concern among the school leaders, the predictions of the closing colleges or fusion.

The new projections offer a slightly more optimistic short-term image, but do not change the fundamental situation.
