Hispanics are entering colleges and universities at higher rates than whites and blacks, but still lower than Asian Americans.
This is an all-time high for Hispanics, according to the Pew Hispanic Center, which released a report late last week.
This is the result, in part, of a dramatic rise in the high school graduation rate among Hispanic high-school students.
That's the good news. The bad news is that once in college, Latino students still lag when it comes to earning Bachelor's degrees.
