08/28/2008 - The Pew Hispanic Center has a new report looking at Hispanic students in public schools.
The number of such students nearly doubled from 1990 to 2006, to 20% of all public school students -- or 10 million students. In 2006, Hispanics were about half of all public school students in California, up from 36% in 1990. They were more than 40% of enrollment in Arizona.
Strong growth in Hispanic enrollment is expected to continue for decades, according to a recently released U.S. Census Bureau population projection. In 2050, there will be more school-age Hispanic children than school-age non-Hispanic white children.
