Futures at Risk: The Story of Latino Student Achievement in California, 2010. Research Report
Education Trust-West
The educational success of Latino students is critical to the prosperity and vitality of California and the nation. The state has more than three million Latino students in its classrooms, accounting for roughly half of all the children in public schools. This report tracks the most recent data on Latino achievement in California and examines performance trends over the past eight years (2003-10). It shines a spotlight on the opportunity gaps that exist between Latino students and their peers. This analysis highlights the state's largest moderate-to-high-poverty school districts that have demonstrated gains in Latino achievement. The report also reveals districts with the lowest rates of Latino achievement and smallest performance gains. This report concludes by recommending a series of reforms to address Latino achievement and opportunity gaps and improve the academic outcomes of the state's Latino students. (Contains 7 tables, 5 figures, 8 data sources and 6 notes.)
