Document Number: 10740Hispanic High School Graduates Pass Whites in Rate of College Enrollment - For the first time, Latino high school graduates passed whites in college enrollment rate. In the fall class of 2012, 69% of Latino high school graduates enrolled in college compared to 67% of their white counterparts. The achievement gap hasn't closed, however. Latinos are still less likely to enroll in a four-year institution, more likely to be part-time students, and less likely to complete a bachelor's degree than whites. The original data source is the October school enrollment supplement of the Current Population Survey collected by the Census Bureau. (Richard Fry and Paul Taylor, Pew Hispanic Center, May 2013)...
