New report shows racial gap in AZ educational institutions

PHOENIX- A new report from the Arizona Minority Education Policy Analysis Center shows a major racial and ethnic gap in the state's educational institutions.

"Arizona is at a crossroads in education in terms of demographics," said Everardo Martinez-Inzunza, associate dean for South Yuma County Services at the Arizona Western College and AMEPAC chairman. "The state has a window of opportunity to be proactive and help the increasing minority student population make more educational achievements."

The report showed that this gap could result in economic risks if education policies are not developed to accommodate the growing population of minority students.

AMEPAC highlights the educational achievement of minority students, from pre-K through post-secondary education, in Arizona.
