WHY SHOULD YOU DONATE?
Over the past decade the high school dropout rate for Hispanics has lowered significantly. In 2014, the statistic reached a record low of only 12% when it had reached upwards of 32% in the years prior. This decrease drove the national high school dropout rate down from 12% to 7%.
In 2014, 35% of Hispanics ages 18-24 enrolled in a two or four-year college, up from 22% in 1993- a 13 percentage-point increase. That amounted to 2.3 million Hispanic college students in 2014.
Although a record number of Hispanics are receiving more post-secondary degrees than ever before, Hispanics still lag behind other groups obtaining a four-year degree.
