Another report released this week says West Virginia is the lowest-performing state in the nation in the percentage of adults who have a college degree.

The same report says that more students finish high school than most states.

A fourth of West Virginians between the ages of 25 and 64 had college degrees in 2005 compared with 37.4 percent of adults across the USA.

Just under 73 percent of West Virginians in 2005 had graduated from high school, compared with the national average of 68.8 percent.
