The Need for Hispanic Parents’ Education
Abstract. Even though more Hispanics are getting a postsecondary education than ever before, they still lag other groups in obtaining a four-year degree. As of 2014, among Hispanics ages 25 to 29, just 15% of Hispanics had a bachelor’s degree or higher. By far, the fastest-growing group of college-age people is Hispanic. If they do not increase the number of college graduates and university degrees, there will be too few workers to take up the slack of baby boomers retiring from essential high-salary positions, and too many in lower-paying jobs.
Equity in Hispanic’s Education
Abstract. Equity requires putting systems in place to ensure that every child has an equal chance for success, understanding the unique challenges and barriers faced by low-income students and their families. Even though more Hispanics are getting post-secondary education than ever before, they still lag other populations in obtaining a four-year degree. This gap is due, in large part, to the fact that most low-income Hispanic parents, mothers, in particular, did not attend college and can not motivate and guide their children through the American educational system. Equity education requires that every middle and high school in America train low-income Hispanic mothers to help their children get to and through college.

Barriers to Educational Opportunities for Hispanics
Abstract. For Hispanics in the United States, the educational experience is one of accumulated disadvantage. Many Hispanic students begin formalized schooling without the ec It is about the economy. onomic and social resources that many other students receive, and schools are often ill equipped to compensate for these initial disparities. For Hispanics, initial disadvantages often stem from parents’ immigrant and socioeconomic status and their lack of knowledge about the U.S. education system. As Hispanic students proceed through the schooling system, inadequate school resources and their weak relationships with their teachers continue to undermine their academic success. Initial disadvantages continue to accumulate, resulting in Hispanics having the lowest rates of high school and college degree attainment, which hinders their chances for stable employment. The situation of Hispanic educational attainment is cause for national concern.

Analytics for Hispanic Population
Abstract. Dr. Allen considers known data, examines assumptions, and creates certain models to see how they predict what the future will bring. The goal is to project current information to determine how the Hispanic population will grow in the decades ahead. We can answer questions such as: when will it reach 100 million citizens, and will it overtake the White (non-Hispanic) population and when. © Dr. Donald Allen Professor of Mathematics, Texas A&M University.

A view of the future through kindergarten demographics
Abstract. At 54 million, Hispanics are the largest minority group in the United States. They make up 17%of the nation’s population, and have dispersed across the nation. Fueled in part by Hispanic population growth, there may be more minorities in classrooms when school starts this fall (among them blacks, Asians and Hispanics) than white students nationwide in K-12 public schools, according to U.S. Department of Education projections.
