Demographic shift: 1/4 of all Kindergarten Students are Hispanic

According to the Associated Press, census data shows that nearly 1/4 of all kindergarten students are Hispanic. This will likely foreshadow additional data collected during the upcoming decennial¬† headcount. At 15 percent of the U.S. population, Hispanics are the nation’s largest minority group. Minorities are projected to be the majority in schools by 2023, seven years earlier than was estimated in 2004. They are projected to become the majority nationwide by 2042.
