Latinos in California Lag Badly on College Completion

11/06/2013

Inside Higher Ed.  November 5, 2013.  Latinos in California are far less likely to earn a college credential than their peers from other ethnic groups, according to a new report from the Campaign for College Opportunity, a nonprofit group based in California. One third of the state's adult population is Latino, the report said, but only 11 percent of Latinos in the state hold at least a bachelor's degree, compared to 39 percent of white Californians.
