'Dropped?' report on Latino education presented in Douglas
February 7, 2013
The Douglas Dispatch reported on the Jan. 30 presentation in Douglas of the Morrison Institute's "Dropped?" report, which focuses on Arizona's Latino educational attainment gap. Dr. David Daugherty, Morrison Institute's director of research, gave the demonstration:
Unless something is done to improve Latino educational achievement, Dr. Daugherty and his researchers feel that Arizona’s population of undereducated workers will continue to grow. Furthermore, low-education levels can lead to collateral problems such as above-average unemployment levels, low annual incomes, a high proportion of residents in poverty and reduced state revenues.
