Latino College Completion: New York
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 New York's fact sheet include: (1) New York had the 4th largest Latino population in the U.S.; (2) In New York, 21% of the K-12 population was Latino; (3) In New York, 18% of the state population was Latino. (Projections show a continued increase.); (4) The median age of Latinos in New York was 30, compared to 41 for White non-Hispanics; and (5) In New York, 23% of Latino adults (25 to 64 years old) had earned an associate degree or higher, compared to 44% of all adults. (Contains 5 footnotes.) [For the executive summary, see ED532055. For the National Fact Sheet, see ED532060.]
