An interview with Mark Hugo Lopez, Associate Director, Pew Hispanic Center and Richard Fry, main author of the report to highlight the significance of the findings of the report "Latino High-School Graduates Outpace Whites in College Enrollment".
Hispanic high-school graduates enrolled in college at greater rates than did their white counterparts last year, according to a new analysis of Census Bureau data by the Pew Research Hispanic Center, Washington, D.C.
The center's report, published on May 9, 2013 reveals that 69 percent of Hispanic graduates in the Class of 2012 immediately enrolled in college, compared with 67 percent of white graduates. That represents a 20-percentage-point increase in Hispanic high-school graduates' college-going rates since 2000, when just under half immediately enrolled. Nationally, among new high-school graduates of all races, the percentage of those who entered college right away was 66 percent in the fall of 2012.
