Profile America - Wednesday, June 11th. It's time for gowns, carnations, diplomas, and lots of pictures. This is the season for graduations - with ceremonies being held all over the country for students from kindergarten to graduate school. In the U.S., there are over 78 million students at all levels of schooling - some 41 and a half million from nursery through elementary school, about 17 million in high school, and nearly 20 million in college. High school graduation rates have grown steadily through the years, so that now, around 8-out-of-10 young adults have a diploma. The rate for college graduates has also grown. In 1980, 16 percent of Americans had a college degree - today, that figure is over 30 percent. You can find more facts about America from the U.S. Census Bureau online at www.census.gov.
