The Browning of U.S. Higher Education
Roach, Ronald
Diverse: Issues in Higher Education, v26 n9 p46-48 Jun 2009
The author reports the result of a population analysis released by scholars at the Tomas Rivera Policy Institute at the University of Southern California. The scholars say that changing student demographics may prove the most formidable ever for American colleges and universities as well as for public K-12 school systems. They have pointed to the precedent of European immigration in the latter years of the 19th century and the early years of the 20th century to describe the challenges that lay ahead for U.S. K-12 and higher education. The analysis shows that Hispanic children make up a majority or near-majority of first-graders in ten of the nation's largest cities. Non-White immigration to the United States since the 1960s is a major reason why minorities have become an increasingly growing presence in the college-age pool.
