Black and Hispanic Male Educational Attainment

top

“Black and Hispanic males who earn a bachelor’s degree or higher hold an employment-population ratio of 77.3 percent and 83.7 percent, respectively. Of those who only have a high school diploma and no college, Black males had an employment-population ratio of 59.7 percent, while Hispanic males had a ratio of 78.2 percent.”

An article by Tiffany Pennamon in Diverse Issues in Higher Education highlights research on Black and Hispanic male educational attainment. New data from the Charles H. Houston Center for the Study of the Black Experience in Education at Clemson University indicates African-American and Hispanic males’ employment attainment can be improved if educators and policymakers implement “practices and policies that drive the underrepresented group’s educational persistence and completion”. The center released an infographic revealing some key research findings.
