Hispanics Set School, College Enrollment Records

Monday, 20 Aug 2012 06:23 PM

 

The Pew Hispanic Center reports young Hispanics have reached a couple of education milestones.

Last year, more than 2 million Hispanics ages 18 to 24 were enrolled in college and nearly a fourth of all pre-K through 12th grade public school students last year were Hispanic.

Pew Hispanic Center says Latinos were 16.5 percent of all graduate and undergraduate students, the largest minority group on all college campuses and the largest minority group among four-year college and university students.

A record 24 percent of all pre-K through 12th grade public school students were Hispanic, helped by the elementary school student body also becoming almost one quarter Hispanic. Pre-K and kindergarten students already had reached that milestone.

The Pew Hispanic Center credits Hispanic population growth and higher high school completion rates.
