Women’s and men’s college graduation rates

Two anecdotes and charts: Women’s and men’s college graduation rates.


I gave an extra-credit assignment in one of my courses. The course had twenty students, eleven men and nine women. Six students chose to do the assignment — and then I noticed something in my grade book: all of them were women. Getting all statistic-y about it: 66.7% of the females were willing to do the extra work, while 0% if the men were.

Anecdotal, but fascinating.
