Hispanics Making Huge Education Gains

According to Pew Research Center, the Hispanic dropout rate has hit new lows and college enrollment is at new highs. The article points out that this “is particularly noteworthy given the large increase in Hispanic enrollment in U.S. public and private schools.” Coincidental with the dropout rate decrease is record college enrollment by Hispanics. It goes on to say that while these gains are strong, Hispanics still have a long way to go when compared to other races and ethnicities.
