Last month I discussed how Hispanics taking AP classes for college credit was on the rise. While work remained, overall Hispanics have been making impressive gains in obtaining college credit while still in high school. Today, another indication that this a postive trend with New Mexico’s class of 2009 leading the nation in the percentage of Hispanic students who earned a score of 3-5 on at least one Advanced Placement exam. More stats on their success after the jump. Way to go New Mexico – thanks for leading the way!
