Having just received her master’s degree, it’s no surprise that Eva Longoria is big on college education. And at the recent conference hosted by the National Council of La Raza, she demanded that Latinos call for equal college education opportunities.
According to The Huffington Post, Eva pointed out that although college graduation rates for Latinos are at an all-time high “[they’re] not keeping up with demographic changes.” College graduation rates for Hispanics have increased seven-fold since 2008, according to the Pew Hispanic Center. Yet the Hispanic population in the U.S. grew 43 percent from 2000 to 2010. At this rate, non-Hispanic whites are expected to lose their majority by 2043. Longoria believes it’s important that the Hispanic community’s education keep pace with its population growth.
