The act of going to college and earning a degree is more important than ever to today's youth and our society. Individuals with a bachelor's degree earn much more than high school graduates, and society as a whole also gains from an educated citizenry. Unfortunately, access to a postsecondary education is not equal in America. Students historically underrepresented at the postsecondary level--students of color, those from low-income backgrounds, and first-generation students--are still less likely to prepare for, apply for, enroll in, and persist through postsecondary education. This study was conducted by the Educational Policy Institute through a grant from the Pew Hispanic Center to provide the most up-to-date analysis of Latino achievement through postsecondary education. This report outlines the pathway to and through postsecondary education for Latinos and other students, and looks at a number of variables that offer insight into how motivated and prepared these students are for postsecondary work. The following are appended: (1) Data Tables; and (2) Methodology. (Contains 19 exhibits.)
