The title of this article should have been "Illegal Hispanics are Less Likely to Graduate College."
The person writing this smears the good names of the Texans with Hispanic ancestry who do quite well at most everything they try. Their failure rate is no worse than any other ethnic group.
And this is coming from an old white man with some Native People for ancestors.
It is wrong to lump illegal aliens in with honorable folks.

The study is flawed. They didn.t even include UTEP and EPCC. The article the school at San Marcos had 31,000 students. I belive EPCC has quite a few more than that. I realize that EPCC is a JC, but the Hispanic graduation percentage has to be in the 90% range. Let me clairify 90% of the grads are Hispanic. There are lots of junior colleges in Texas that are the choice of the students who either cannot afford the Baylor, SMU, UTA and A&M or choose not to go there. If you are looking for a reason then study why the kids are coming out of High School with no basic skills such as english language, math, and reading. This problem is not exclusive to hispanic students.

This isn't news. Trade school. That's the ticket.
