Minority Graduation Gap
After six years in college, 57 percent of students who are enrolled at American public and private institutions will earn a degree. That number is pedestrian on its own, but when you start to look at patterns within demographics, things get even worse. Whereas 60 percent of white students earn a degree in six years, only 49 percent of Hispanics and 40 percent of blacks do the same. This fall, the nonprofit Education Trust published a report that looked at which schools had the largest and smallest gaps in graduation rates among white, Hispanic, and black students, respectively. Here are the institutions that are getting all of their kids through at similar rates, as well as the ones that show significant race-based gaps.
