In 2003, 9% of local police officers nationwide were Latino, with the highest representation (19%) among departments serving a population of 1 million or more.
Excelencia in Education links research, policy, and practice to inform policymakers and institutional leaders and promotes policies and practices that support higher educational achievement for Latino and all students. In today's knowledge driven economy, a college degree is critical to the success of a competitive workforce. Yet in 2007, only 13 percent of Hispanics, 32 percent of whites and 19 percent of blacks 25 years and older had earned a bachelor's degree or higher. If you support Excelencia in Education's mission, please help us do more! We appreciate your support.
