Educational disparities amongst different races in the Silicon Valley
San Jose State University’s Human Rights Institute released Silicon Valley Pain Index which provides a look at disparities among White, Black, Latino and Asian populations in the Silicon Valley.
Key appalling statistics with respect to education for the underserved include the following:
14.9% Blacks do not complete high school
20.8% Latinos do not complete high school
31% White children are not proficient in Math
67% Black children are not proficient in Math
75% Latino children are not proficient in Math
