More Women in College than Workforce: Are Latinas Leading this Trend?

Great piece in the NYT today showing that more young women are enrolled in college than are in the workforce. Many reasons for this including the economic, cultural, and other factors.¬† I’ve definitely seen a trend toward women-majority classes. When you consider that college enrollment growth over the last year has been mainly attributed to the increased of number of Latino students, one could conclude that Latinas¬† are leading the way on this trend.
