Hispanics, high school dropouts and the ged

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