Educated Immigrants

  1. This article illustrates the fact that newly arrived immigrants are the best educated ever. Stating that 41% of immigrants entering the United States within the last five years has at least a bachelors. Whereas, 3 out of 10 U.S. born adults have a bachelors degree. Later on in the article, it explains gaps in the number of immigrants who have completed high school and how Asian immigrants being a large portion of the educated immigrants, are on the rise.
  2. The information presented in this article are came from Pew Research tabulations of the U.S. decennial census. Basically the census of the last five years and The American community survey. I chose this article because it was interesting and because this post was about educational statistics of the people in our country.
  3. Do you think it matters that the immigrants are more likely to have college degrees in “our country” than the people who where born here?

    This is late and technically that results in zero points. But I’ve given another student a one-time, only one day late score of half points so I’ll do the same for you. But this is a one time only deal.
