While currently white people and Asians are earning more college degrees than people from other ethnic groups, it looks like Hispanic students are catching up.
According to a piece by Elizabeth Llorente at Fox News:
Second-generation Latinas are enrolling in college at the same rate as third-generation non-Hispanic white women, but they are not completing their education at a comparable rate, according to a new study of immigrant-origin young adults released Tuesday by the Migration Policy Institute.
Latinas have a 46 percent college enrollment rate, roughly the same as non-Latina white women…. Slightly more than 50 percent of non-Latina white women obtain their degree, compared with Latinas at 33 percent, according to the study.
Second-generation Hispanic men enrolled in college at a rate of 37 percent. White men enrolled at a 40 percent rate. Only about 20 percent of Hispanic men, however, earn college degrees.
