The estimated national 2012-13 graduation rate for Latino males was 65% compared to 80% for White, non-Latino males.
The Latino/White male graduation gap decreased from 20 percentage points in 2009-10 to 15 percentage points in 2012-2013. As Table 4 indicates, Latino males graduated at the highest rates in Alaska, Maine, West Virginia, New Jersey, Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Idaho, Iowa and Wisconsin — all states with low Latino enrollment. The states with the lowest graduation rates for Latino males are Colorado, Michigan, New Mexico, Washington, Georgia, New York, District of Columbia, Utah, Connecticut and Nevada — as shown in Table 5.
With over a 21-percentage point gap respectively, Colorado, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New York, North Dakota, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Utah have some of the largest gaps be- tween the Latino male graduation rate and the White male graduation rates in the nation.
