Educational Attainment of Hispanics

Hispanics are the least educated population segment in the United States. More than one-third of Hispanics aged 25 or older (35 percent) do not have a high school diploma, according to a report by the National Center for Education Statistics. This compares with only 16 percent of Blacks, 14 percent of Asians, and 8 percent of non-Hispanic Whites. Among Hispanics, the percentage without a high school diploma varies greatly by ethnicity...
