One thought on “Texas Census Data”
  1. Hispanics number raising but still we have the lowest higher education degree attainment …besides immigration laws (which unfortunately we cannot change) what else is missing? A group of Hispanic professionals and I put together this website http://portaleducativo.us/main.html where we provide comprehensive information in Spanish to prospective Hispanic students, what else can we do to help each other?
