Un Nuevo Dia: As Latino Population Grows, so Must College Attainment. Lumina Foundation Focus[TM]. Spring 2011
Brennan, Patricia L.
Lumina Foundation for Education
Recently released figures from U.S. Census Bureau make one point with stunning clarity: The face of America is changing. And rapidly. Consider the numbers: The U.S. population grew by about 9 percent between 2000 and 2010, rising from 281 million to nearly 309 million. During that decade, the number of Latino residents increased by 43 percent--nearly ten times the growth rate of the nation's non-Latino population. Today, Latinos make up almost one-sixth of the U.S. population. By 2050, experts say, one in four Americans will be Latino. The current "Focus" takes a detailed look at this historic demographic shift and shows how it affects college-going and college success among Latino students throughout the nation.
