Thousands Participated In State College Credit Program

The Ohio Department of Education says more than 52 thousand students participated in the first full year of a  program allowing middle- and high-schoolers to earn free college credit. The department says nearly 15 percent of Ohio high school juniors and seniors participated in the College Credit Plus program. Ninety percent of participants passed. The department estimates families saved 110 million dollars in future college tuition through the program. Students' home districts pick up the tab for most of that cost.
