Latino College Completion: Louisiana
Excelencia in Education (NJ1)
In 2009, Excelencia in Education launched the Ensuring America's Future initiative to inform, organize, and engage leaders in a tactical plan to increase Latino college completion. An executive summary of Latino College Completion in 50 states synthesizes information on 50 state factsheets and builds on the national benchmarking guide. Each factsheet provides state level snapshots about Latinos in the educational pipeline and the equity gap between Latinos and White non-Hispanics in achievement. Additionally, examples of how evidence-based practices improve Latino college completion at institutions of higher education are provided. Highlights from Louisiana's fact sheet include: (1) Louisiana had the 31st largest Latino population in the U.S.; (2) In Louisiana, 3% of the K-12 population was Latino; (3) In Louisiana, 4% of the state population was Latino. (Projections show a continued increase.); (4) The median age of Latinos in Louisiana was 29, compared to 39 for White non- Hispanics; and (5) In Louisiana, 23% of Latino adults (25 to 64 years old) had earned an associate degree or higher, compared to 28% of all adults. (Contains 5 footnotes.) [For the executive summary, see ED532055. For the National Fact Sheet, see ED532060.]
