Area Research Education

The more educated someone is the less likely it is that they will live in poverty.

Poverty Rates are 5% for people with a bachelor’s degree or higher, 10% for people with some college but no degree, 14% for people with a high school diploma and no college and 29% for people with no high school diploma.

LEO works with education partners to identify and evaluate programs that increase success in school from early childhood to adulthood.

Featured projects include Stay the Course, a community college completion program designed to help low-income students overcome the non-academic barriers that often lead to students dropping out of school.
