|Hispanics make up 52 per cent of state's students.|
For the first time in modern Texas history, Hispanic students now make up a majority of those enrolled in Texas public schools. Newly released enrollment statistics for the 2010-2011 school year show there are 2,480,000 Hispanic students in the public schools, representing 50.2 percent of the total enrollment, which is 4,933,617. A report detailing previous enrollment trends is also available.If Hispanics are now a majority in the public schools, then why are republicans skewing the historical perspective of our state to minimize the contributions of "minorities" such as Hispanics- who are now actually no longer a minority but the majority. This white, GOP control of our majority-minority state has got to end soon. Otherwise, Texas will be under white minority rule. We can't have that.......not at My HEB!
