Hispanic student enrollment more than doubles over 2 decades

September 14, 2017 Compliance

The population of Hispanic students enrolled at all levels of education has more than doubled since 1996, according to a recent analysis by the U.S. Census Bureau.

From 1996 to 2016, Hispanic student enrollment grew by 9 million, representing a 102 percent increase. As of 2016, Hispanic students represented nearly 23 percent of the total population of all people enrolled in school from pre-kindergarten through graduate school.

Overall, total student enrollment in 2016 was 77 million, which represents 9.9 percent growth since 1996.

Part of the increase in Hispanic student enrollment is a factor of population growth. According to the Census Bureau , “More than half of the growth in the total population of the United States between 2000 and 2010 was due to the increase in the Hispanic population.”

The other big factor in Hispanic student population growth is the decline in high school dropout rates. Dropouts among Hispanic students fell from 34.5 percent in 1996 to 9.9 percent in 2016. The national average is 6.4 percent.

Spanish was the home language of more than 77 percent of all English language learner (ELL) students during the 2014-15 school year,according to the National Center for Education Statistics These individuals are entitled to meaningful access to federally funded educational programs under Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and Executive Order 13166.

The growth in Hispanic enrollment just underscores the need for language access solutions in our schools.
