Latino College Completion: South Carolina
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 South Carolina's fact sheet include: (1) South Carolina had the 29th largest Latino population in the U.S.; (2) In South Carolina, 5% of the K-12 population was Latino; (3) In South Carolina, 5% of the state population was Latino. (Projections show a continued increase.); (4) The median age of Latinos in South Carolina was 26, compared to 40 for White non-Hispanics; and (5) In South Carolina, 16% of Latino adults (25 to 64 years old) had earned an associate degree or higher, compared to 35% of all adults. (Contains 5 footnotes.) [For the executive summary, see ED532055. For the National Fact Sheet, see ED532060.]
