  • 1. Hispanics, High School Dropouts and the GED
    By: Miryam Hernandez
  • 2. Only about one in ten Hispanics drop out of High School.
    A High School diploma allows students to attend local colleges and sometimes attend local Universities.
    Annual earnings remain the same for Hispanics with or without a GED.
    Even though Hispanic young men remained employed, women were likely to graduate and receive their bachelor’s degree.
  • 3. Compared to the Black students, Hispanics have a higher rate for graduating.
    Foreign-born Latinos are more likely to drop out of High School than native-born Latinos.
    This may be due to the inability to tame the English language.
    As compared to the past, more Hispanics are graduating High School and receiving their GED.
