This report is one of a series of three reports on Latino students in the educational pipeline. The purpose of this series is to provide a sense of the challenges facing Latino youth compared to White youth on the pathways to postsecondary education and the baccalaureate. In researching Part I, our interest was in finding out what happened to NELS 8th-grade Latino students from 1988 12-years later. Through descriptive and inferential statistics, this section describes how Latino students compared with White students throughout the various stages of the educational and occupational pipeline. The section covers background characteristics, preparation for postsecondary education, access to postsecondary education, postsecondary persistence and completion, and employment outcomes. (Contains 1 footnote, 19 figures, 6 tables, and 19 exhibits.) [This document was published by the Educational Policy Institute (EPI). For other documents in the series, see ED499873 and ED499874.]
