My blog discusses the important and complex subjects of college completion, college success, student risk factors (for failing), college readiness, and academic preparation. I will explore the pieces of the college puzzle that heavily influence, if not determine, college success rates.
New statistics on community colleges show minority and female concentration
has published new statistics showing faster growth in community colleges than other postsecondary sectors. perhaps this is because of lower costs. But the most interesting stat was that community colleges enroll 60% of all Hispanic students and 50% of all black students, but only 43% of all white students. Moreover, female students grew from 40% of all
students in 1970 to 58% now. The current female ratios are stunning - 57% of the hispanic students are female and 63% of black students are female. Where are the males? Still a mystery, and Lumina has other papers that explore this issue without any clear resolution.
