State Wants High Schoolers To Get More College Credit

CLEVELAND (AP) - Education advocates want more high school students to take advantage of a state-paid program that enables them to earn college credits.

Those enrolled in the Post-Secondary Enrollment Options program are able to earn high school and college credits at the same time.

Joseph Rochford of the Stark Education Partnership says it makes sense for students to use state money to earn the both credits at the same time, especially as the cost of college tuition increases.

Students have earned as much as two years' worth of college credit.
