Hispanic 2015

The past few years of US public education have been historic. Driven largely by growth in the Latino population, the 2014-2015 school year saw Latino, African American, Asian American, Pacific Islander, and Native American students comprising the majority of students in our nation’s public K-12 schools for the first time in US history. Today, about one in four public school students is Hispanic – a growth trend projected to continue in the near future. Latino high school graduation and postsecondary education enrollment rates are at record levels, as are Latino postsecondary degree completion numbers.
