DC’s demographic reconstruction of America rolls along:
Latinos now make up a majority of California’s public school students, cracking the 50 percent barrier for the first time in the state’s history, according to data released Friday by the state Department of Education.
Almost 50.4 percent of the state’s students in the 2009-10 school year identified themselves as Hispanic or Latino, up 1.36 percent from the previous year.
This is a boon for California education officials struggling with that persistent racial achievement gap. Now, critics can’t complain minorities have lower average test scores than majority students. Another brilliant government success story!
