Fieldnote 9 Oct. 2012

Some notes from the info session/training session I went to. I will be participating as both a presenter and mentor for the Latino Educational Fair next week. I will work with a group of students on writing a personal statement, and later in the day speaking to students about the goals they have for college.

Notes

Kentucky: 4th fastest growing Latino population in the USA

42% of Latino adults don’t have a HS diploma

The “explosion” of Latinos in Kentucky was from the birthrates of Latinos, not immigration.

16.4% of Kentucky Latinos age 25-64 have a 2-year diploma or more.

36% of Kentucky Latino youth live in poverty.

Over 15% of students in Fayette County are Latinos, mostly 5th grade or lower.
