Ed Trust-West: Inequities Facing Latino Students

California’s Latino students are the majority in our schools – over 3 million Latino students attend public K-12 schools in California. At the higher education level, there are nearly 1 million Latino students in California public colleges and universities. Yet despite this growing majority, a new report from The Education Trust–West says we’ve got work to do to truly support these students and set them up for success.
Our Latino students face troubling inequities from early learning through higher education – from having insufficient access to early childhood education to being tracked away from college-preparatory coursework and required to take remedial courses in college. Ed Trust –West’s new report, The Majority Report, calls out these disparities and points to bright spot schools, districts, institutions, and programs, dispelling the myth that gaps can’t be closed and calling on California’s leaders to recommit to equity with a sense of urgency.
“California needs transformative change to truly support Latino students.” the report concludes, reminding us that “Most of all, it will take state, county, district, and community leaders refusing to be content with an incremental chipping away at these disparities.”  The Majority Report Data Tool shows the percentage of students meeting state standards on the most recent annual assessments in English language arts and math.   Check out the data tool for County-by-County 2017 SBAC Results by Race/Ethnicity
