When they start kindergarten, roughly one-third of Hispanic children are not proficient enough in English to be tested in the language, and Hispanic children are five times more likely than non-Hispanic white children to have a mother who did not graduate from high school, according to a demographic report on young Hispanics in the United States.

Released by the National Task Force on Early Childhood Education for Hispanics, based at Arizona State University in Tempe, the report presents a demographic profile of such children, including factors that are related to their academic performance.
