Going in the wrong direction: Number of Florida 25-34 year-olds with college degrees drops while national number increases

From this morning’s Orlando Sentinel:

The number of young Floridians with a college degree fell in 2010 to about 817,000 — a decrease of about 19,000 from 2009, according to new estimates.

The Florida drop runs counter to a national uptick in college-educated Americans that the Obama administration plans to tout when the nation’s governors gather in Virginia later this week. In 2010, 15.9 million Americans between the ages of 25 and 34 had a college degree, a bump of about 100,000 from the year before.
