Today's Promise, Tomorrow's Future: The Social and Educational Factors Contributing to the Outcomes of Hispanics in Urban Schools

The data in this report clearly show that many Hispanic school-aged children live in circumstances that hinder their ability to do well in school, but the results also indicate enormous potential. This study attempts to pull together achievement data specifically focusing on Hispanic students in our urban schools. This publication examines  six areas in the lives of America’s Hispanic youth:
1. Readiness to learn
2. Hispanic and ELL Hispanic student achievement on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP)
3. Hispanic and ELL Hispanic student achievement on the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) in selected big city school districts   
4. College and career preparedness
5. School experience
6. Postsecondary experience
