Hispanics are the fastest-growing group of high school graduates in the nation, but their lagging college-attendance rates raise economic and educational challenges for the Southeast and the nation, a policy bulletin suggests.

The web edition of the 2005 Fact Book on Higher Education is available from the Southern Regional Education Board.

The Nov. 2 bulletin—based on the 2005 Fact Book on Higher Education, published in July by the Atlanta-based Southern Regional Education Board—shows that Hispanic high school students will grow in number faster than any other group between 2004 and 2014. But their college-attendance rates are not growing.

The fact book includes more than 200 pages of demographic information and educational-attainment data
