From Middle School to the Workforce: Latino Students in the Educational Pipeline - The study on Latino Students and The Educational Pipeline is a three-part series. This report, which is Part I, examines how National Educational Longitudinal Study Latino students compared to white students over a 12-year period, examining background characteristics, preparation for postsecondary education, access to postsecondary education, postsecondary persistence and completion and employment outcomes. Latino students were less likely to have a parent with an earned educational credential and more likely to be from a low-income background. Additionally, Latino students were more likely to take certain remedial classes and less likely to take rigorous coursework in high school. Almost two-thirds of Latino students who enrolled in postsecondary education did not earn a degree by the year 2000, compared to 40% of white students. (Watson Scott Swail, Alberto F. Cabrera, Chul Lee and Adriane Williams, Educational Policy Institute, April 2005)...
