Hispanic youths are more likely than black or non-Hispanic white youths to attend public high schools that are large, have high student-to-teacher ratios, and have large percentages of students who come from low-income families, according to a study published by the Washington-based Pew Hispanic Center.

Only 10 percent of public high schools have 1,800 or more students. But more than 56 percent of Hispanic high school students attend schools of that size, compared with 32 percent of African-Americans and 26 percent of whites of the same age.

Also, 37 percent of Hispanics are educated at public high schools with student-to-teacher ratios that are greater than 22-to-1, compared with 14 percent of blacks and 13 percent of whites.
