Education

Below is the education pipeline for Latinas (represented by the first number) in the United States according to the 2000 census. This section contains California specific educational statistics for Latinas. 
 


Latinas are a visible demographic in California, and more specifically, in California’s public schools, representing nearly 23% (1.4 million) of total K-12 enrollment.[1] Unfortunately, the large number of Latinas enrolled in California’s K-12 educational system does not translate into more Latinas entering California’s four year university systems. In 2005, Latinas represented 7% of total UC enrollment, and 13% of CSU enrollment.
