1 in 5 students - now Latino

US News reports on a new Pew study with some surprising numbers:

Since 1990, the number of Latino students nationwide has nearly doubled, reaching 10 million in 2006. That number is expected to swell to 28 million by 2050, which would mean Hispanic students will outnumber white children in public schools, according to the study. Today, 1 in 5 public school students is Hispanic.

The population (and particularly the K-12 population) continues to become more diverse, and at an accelerated rate. The American Academy of Pediatricians has found that by 2020, 40% of our school-aged population will be comprised of children from minority groups, and by 2025 whites will barely retain their majority status, at 52.6%.

This is occurring in the context of decades of disparities in the performance of the major student groups, at a time when we have renewed our commitment to educational equity and when we are putting accountability systems in place to show whether or not we're living up to our promises.

Bottom line: we're going to have to do something radically different if we're going to bring these populations up to proficient levels as they grow to make up an ever-larger percentage of the student population.
