Minority Students Flocking to U.S. Colleges in Record Numbers

A new report from the U.S. Education Department shows more minorities are going to college and more are going directly to college from high school.  A large percentage of these minority students attend public colleges with 80% receiving some form of financial assistance.  The high attendance is paying off for the Hispanic community as more and more are attending some form of higher education.  In 2008 about 13% of Hispanic adults had at least a bachelor’s degree compared to 20% for African-Americans and 33% for white Americans.
