The training, called Jump Start, allows students to earn college and career credentials.

About one in five high school graduates – around 8,500 students per year – are earning Jump Start diplomas.

 Roughly 2 percent of students did so in the past.

“It is a proven success,” Edwards told the opening session of the 2018 Jump Start convention.
