Only 52.8 percent of Tennessee high schoolers enrolled in college after they graduated in 2021, says a new report from the Tennessee Higher Education Commission. Latinos were the least likely to enroll. For those who do want to go to college, there are several barriers preventing them from doing so—including a lack of counseling support, having to help with family finances, not being prepared for higher education in high school, and the high cost of getting a degree.
