Published in May 2010, this 24-page paper from the Pew Hispanic Center looks at the pathways to a General Educational Development (GED) credential exam taken by Hispanic high school drop-outs in the United States. Written by Richard Fry, the report notes that just one-in-ten Hispanic high school drop-outs has a GED, as compared to two-in-ten black high school drop-outs and three-in-ten white high school drop-outs. The report is based on educational attainment data from the U.S. Census Bureau's 2008 American Community Survey. Moving on through the report, interested parties can also look at labor market outcomes of Hispanic adults based on whether they dropped out of high school and lack a GED, and other measures. Also, visitors can look at other relevant reports from the National Center for Education Statistics on this site.
