Latino High School and Baccalaureate Graduates: A Comparison. Latino Students & the Educational Pipeline, Part II
Swail, Watson Scott; Cabrera, Alberto F.; Lee, Chul; Williams, Adriane
Online Submission
While Part I looked at the entire cohort of 8th graders and what became of them 12-years later, this section focuses on the NELS cohort that went on to postsecondary education. For that reason, we suggest caution in comparing data herein with those in Part I. The percentages will not match up perfectly between reports because the cohorts analyzed are slightly different. Data in Part I will show lower rates in terms of academic progress and achievement because the entire 8th-grade cohort is utilized. In Part II, by screening out those students who chose not to go on to any type of postsecondary education within 8 years of scheduled high school graduation, we expect and do see more rigorous course-taking patterns in high school, higher graduation rates and matriculation rates, and, ultimately, higher postsecondary graduation rates. (Contains 20 exhibits and 3 tables.) [This document was published by the Educational Policy Institute (EPI). For other documents in the series, see ED499872 and ED499873.]
