Hispanics Amanda Hubbard, Heather Clore, Beth Schwartz, Beckie Imboden. Interesting Facts. Hispanics have been around for a long time! In 1609, 11 years before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock, the Mestizo (Spanish and Indian ancestors) settled in what is now Santa Fe, New Mexico.
It is a proven fact that Hispanic Americans have long lagged behind the National education averages of many existing ethnicities, but to say that they are not intelligent is not at all fair! They only lack a formal education.
In each category, Hispanics have less educated people
Children under 5 are less likely to be enrolled in early education than Caucasians or African Americans
Today 1/3 of Hispanics are under the age of 18, and by 2025 they will represent 25% of the K-12 population
The high school drop out rate is higher in Hispanics (according to US Dept of Edu.), and in 1998 30% aged 16-25 were drop outs.
The overall lack of formal education in Hispanics is in part due to their cultural norms and values – a tightly knit family and working to help pay the family’s bills is more important now than slowly getting an education.
This does not mean that Hispanics are less intelligent – It just means they lack the formal education that Americans have.Education – Facts and Insights
