Postsecondary Enrollment and Completion of MCPS African American and Latino Graduates.

With the report by Harper (2012) highlighting success stories of African American males in higher education, there is growing interest in the postsecondary success of African American and Hispanic students, nationally. While there are racial/ethnic and gender gaps in the percentage students who graduate from high school and attend college, there are also students from those two sub-groups who successfully navigate the system. There is a need to refocus the attention to success rates of these underrepresented groups, yet not forgetting the gaps in education that exist. Following the anti-deficit model proposed by Harper, this study sought to highlight levels of college achievement of African American and Hispanic graduates from MCPS.
