The gap in the number of Latino and white college students who graduate with a bachelor’s degree is wider even than the very substantial differences in high school completion and constitutes the greatest disparity in educational outcomes between the nation’s largest minority group and the white majority. A new report by Richard Fry for the Pew Hispanic Center assesses the dimensions of the gap in bachelor’s degree completion between Latinos and whites and some of the factors that contribute to it by focusing on the differing fates of young people who graduate from high school with similar levels of academic preparation. It finds that at several key junctures Latinos fall behind whites with similar qualifications and proposes several interventions to reverse this trend.
