Spurring Latino Students to Higher AchievementLatino students are the fastest-growing population in America’s public schools; by 2020, fully a quarter of public school students are expected to be Latino. But currently, Latino students lag behind white students in some key measures of educational attainment, such as high school graduation, enrollment in two- or four-year colleges, and college completion rates. However, Miami-Dade is among school districts that have bucked that trend, achieving higher-than-average graduation rates among its Latino students and seeing large numbers of them scoring well on Advanced Placement tests. This webinar will examine what Miami-Dade has done to support its Latino students, including immigrant students and those whose families have been part of the community for generations.
