Reporting Significant Trends Affecting Education Progress in the SREB States. Fact Book Bulletin. Challenge to Lead Series
Southern Regional Education Board (SREB)
The fastest-growing racial/ethnic groups in the nation and the SREB region -- Hispanics and African-Americans -- have below-average education attainment rates. If these gaps are not eliminated, continued increases in overall education progress will be impeded -- an unprecedented stall in the historical rise of America's education level. This Bulletin takes a closer look at racial/ethnic and gender differences in bachelor's degree attainment from 1970 to 2000.
