Minnesota’s Latino community voted overwhelmingly for Barack Obama and, more importantly at the moment, for the DFL.
And; what did they get?
Minnesota’s achievement gap among Latino high school students is the worst in the US:
Minnesota has the largest Hispanic achievement gap with Latinos lagging 33 percent in graduation rate than their white counterparts. Only 51 percent of Latinos graduated from high school in the state (the worst Latino graduation rate of any state), whereas 84 percent of whites graduated from high school in the same state. Our nation’s capitol, the District of Columbia had the second biggest achievement gap, with 30 percent.
