The Washington Post and The New York Times report on the Department of Education’s announcement yesterday that more than three-quarters of the nation’s public schools could soon be labeled “failing” under the federal No Child Left Behind Act.
Inside Higher Ed covers a new report from Excelencia finding, “Between 2005 and 2022, the number of Hispanic public high school graduates in the United States is projected to increase by 88 percent, while the number of white high school graduates is expected to decline by 15 percent. And in 2008, only 19 percent of Hispanics ages 25 years and up had earned a postsecondary degree, compared with 29 percent of black young adults and 39 percent of white ones.”
