Report: Less than half of Phila. high graduates go to college

Just under half of Philadelphia's public high school graduates ever go to college.
And those who attend right after high school are more likely to succeed and to earn either two- or four-year degrees.
Those are among the findings of a report being released Thursday, based on data for more than 73,000 students who graduated from city schools from 2003 to 2009. Those numbers do not include the 29 percent of students who drop out of district schools each year.
