High School Drop-out Rate at Record Low
Hispanic High School Graduates Pass Whites in Rate of College Enrollment
A record seven-in-ten (69%) Hispanic high school graduates in the Class of 2012 enrolled in college that fall, two percentage points higher than the rate (67%) among their white counterparts. At the same time, the high school drop-out rate among Latino youths has come down by half – from 28% in 2000 to 14% in 2011. Despite improvements on these measures, Hispanics continue to lag other youth in a number of key higher education indicators, such as completion of four-year college degrees.
