USA Majority-Minority Country by 2044

While graduation rates have been observed at an all time high minority students still lag behind. The U.S. is projected to become a majority-minority country by 2044. Latino students are the fastest growing student population, projected to account for 30% of all students by 2044. 86.6% is the average for white identified students, where as, latino identified students are only at a 75.2% graduation rate. Of the six states that collectively educate more than 70% of Hispanic/Latino students only three have graduation rates above the national average. To ensure the best possible future, we need to respond to the needs of all types of students and prevent them from falling behind. Our future depends on it.
