(Sally) Tonight’s top story… With college tuition rising many students are dropping out. Our Correspondent Kate Bauer has the story.

(Kate) Thanks, Sally. Behind me is Anoka-Ramsey Community College. This is just one of many colleges around the country. However, Anoka-Ramsey has something the others don’t. It has a 52 percent graduation and transfer rate. The national average is 36 percent. With such a high rate, what makes the other 48 percent drop out? I sat down with one recent drop out, Joshua Joseph.

(Joshua) I could go full time, which was hard to work full time too, or I could Work full time. I could continue to go to school and lose money now, or go to work and lose money later. I needed money now. It’s like getting stuck between a rock and a hard place.

(Kate) A hard place to be indeed. This is Kate Bauer reporting. Back to you, Robert.

(Robert) Thank you, Kate. In other news…
