Hispanic College Student Trends in 2006 continued: 

  • Hispanic students come from more educated families in 2006, but that Hispanics continue to be at the bottom in terms of parental education at four year institutions.
  • In 1971, 69.6% of first-generation Hispanic college students were from non-college educated parents but in 2005 the level was down to 13.2%.
  • In comparison, in 1971 37.3% of non-Hispanic whites were from non-college educated parents but in 2005 the level was down to 13.2%.
