Selected Statistics on the Education of Hispanics. Hispanic Statistics Series No.6.
Vincent, Andrea; Orum, Lori S.
This paper presents recent data on the education and educational status of Hispanic Americans. The focus is on participation in elementary and secondary schools, and on the factors that prevent school completion and access to higher education. All included data are footnoted by source to facilitate further research, but the primary source of information for this overview is the Bureau of the Census. Statistics are organized under these headings: (I) demographic overview; (II) school enrollment; (III) educational conditions; (IV) aspirations and expectations; (V) segregation; and (VI) postsecondary education. The data presented reveal that Hispanics do not benefit from or participate in the nation's educational system to the same degree as other population groups. These data also reflect limitations of national efforts to collect, analyze, and publish data on Hispanics; specifically, regional and local statistics on the educational status of Hispanics are largely unavailable.
