The News-Star reports the goals of the Delta Compact — the name given to the marketing, education and development campaign — are to increase the high school graduation rate in the three parishes to 70 percent, increase college attendance among graduating seniors to 50 percent, reduce the unemployment rate and increase access to the Internet.
