Excelencia in Education has unveiled its 2015 Factbook about current Latino student educational achievement. Between 2004 and 2013, the number of U.S. Latinos earning associate degrees or higher increased 71 percent, from 3.8 million to 6.5 million. In 2011, 91 percent of Latino parents said they expected their children to obtain some level of higher education.
These numbers are significant because in 2012, Latinos were the second largest racial/ethnic group in the U.S. at 17 percent. By 2060, that number is projected to reach 31 percent.
