Engaging the Talents of Latino Students for Higher EducationNo Comments
The United States has understood the great need to improve Latino college completion in order to retain international competitiveness. For that reason, Excelencia in Education released 50 separate research-based fact sheets detailing current status of college among Latinos in each state.
The expectation is that state, institutional, and community leaders across America will be empowered to use state information to engage the talents of Latino students and advance student success in higher education to make the states and our country stronger. Each fact sheet includes state-level data on the population, representation among K through 12 students, educational attainment of adults, multiple measures of equity gaps in degree attainment, and examples of promising practices across the country for improving Latino college completion.
