Latino College Completion: United States
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 United States' fact sheet include: (1) In the United States, 22% of the K-12 population was Latino; (2) In the United States, 16% of the population was Latino. (Projections show a continued increase.); (3) The median age of Latinos in the United States was 27, compared to 40 for White non-Hispanics; and (4) In the United States, 19% of Latino adults (25 to 64 years old) had earned an associate degree or higher, compared to 38% of all adults. (Contains 4 footnotes.) [For executive summary, "Ensuring America's Future by Increasing Latino College Completion: Latino College Completion in 50 States. Executive Summary," see ED532055.]
