A lot of good information via a Department of Labor (DOL) report on the Hispanic workforce – a “snapshot” if you will – within the context of the economic recovery. Lots of graphics and tables for you data junkies. Great to see an emphasis on education from elementary to college from the Obama Adminstration going forward. One of the many strategies the DOL will be following:
Increasing college attendance and graduation rates among Hispanics and encouraging more Hispanics to pursue careers in science, engineering and technology. The President’s initiative of “Skills for America’s Future” seeks to: increase the number of college graduates; increase training in science, technology and engineering, and mathematics; and improve industry partnerships with community colleges or training programs by matching classroom curricula with employer needs.
