The College Completion Agenda: State Policy Guide. Latino Edition
College Board Advocacy & Policy Center
State public policy has been an important tool for improving the educational preparation and opportunity for many communities. However, without concerted statewide efforts it will continue to be difficult to substantially expand opportunities to accelerate higher education attainment and workforce preparation. Over the next 15 years, the states will experience a profound demographic shift as the baby boomer generation retires. In many states, this process has already begun. Following in their footsteps in the workplace will be today's young people, an increasing number of whom are Hispanic. To ensure the high caliber of tomorrow's workforce and civic leadership, all states must act today to address the educational achievement of the fastest growing community in the United States--Latinos. The College Board, the National Council of La Raza (NCLR) and Excelencia in Education have come together to create "The College Completion Agenda State Policy Guide: Latino Edition." The guide is framed by the 10 recommendations made by the Commission on Access, Admissions and Success in Higher Education convened by the College Board and is intended to help policymakers generate solutions to the challenges facing Latino youth and their families so that they can prepare, access and complete college in greater numbers. The guide provides background, research and issues for legislators to be aware of, and promising state policy efforts to increase the number of Latinos in the U.S. who earn a postsecondary degree. Individual section contain notes and references. [For related report, "The College Completion Agenda: 2011 Progress Report. Latino Edition," see ED524574.]
