The National Center for Education Statistics released its “Projections of Education Statistics to 2022” with data on enrollment, teachers, graduates, and expenditures.

I also found it interesting that the high school graduation population is projected to decrease. (The number of high school graduates increased by 27 percent between 1997-98 and 2009-10, and a decrease of 2 percent is projected by 2022-23.) Will that mean it’ll start to get easier to get our kids into college?
