Journal of Catholic Education, v19 n3 Article 2 May 2016

Research has shown that enrollment in Catholic secondary schools has positive outcomes for minority students, including increased enrollment in higher education institutions and higher academic achievement. The purpose of this study was to examine if minority enrollment in secondary schools altered over the recession (2007-2009). Results of this study suggest that minority enrollment of Black and Hispanic students in secondary schools increased over the recession, as did Black and Hispanic enrollment in higher education institutions. Data limitations make it impossible to confirm the exact enrollment of minority students in higher education institutions and to establish a direct causal relationship.
