Most high school graduates enrolling in college

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Last year's public school graduates have enrolled in college in record numbers.

A report released Thursday by the Kentucky Education and Workforce Development Cabinet showed 63 percent of the 43,000 graduates in college or some other form of higher education. That's the highest percentage on record.

The Kentucky High School Feedback Report looked at college attendance from each of the state's 228 public high schools. It found that about 92 percent of the graduates are enrolled at in-state colleges or universities.

The University of Kentucky accounts for 2,638 of the graduates, followed by Western Kentucky University with 2,391 of them.
