The Hispanics in Philanthropy (HIP) education initiative, HIP to College, is intended to develop local networks of funders to support the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s College Ready Education and Postsecondary Success strategies. To further develop the initiative, HIP identified five sites to consider for future work — two states (Colorado and North Carolina), two metropolitan areas (Philadelphia and New Orleans), and one region (South Florida). These five locations represent a diverse set of communities with varying level of Latinos student concentration and college readiness. This report provides a snapshot of the current status of education for Latinos at the national level and in the five locations; it also gives an overview of the local education policy landscape, with opportunities and challenges in College-Ready Education and Postsecondary Success strategies for Latino students.
