Gov. Kim Reynolds yesterday (Thursday) praised an increase in the number of dual-enrolled students across the state after the release of the Iowa Department of Education’s Annual Condition of Iowa’s Community College’s report. It shows that more than 49,800 students earned college credits while still in high school last year, a 4.1 percent increase from the previous year. In total, dual enrollment has gone up around 137 percent in the past 13 years. There are currently 48 states with dual enrollment policies, and Iowa is leading the nation.
