In Atlanta, Hispanic student enrollment in independent schools lags behind overall growth in the metro area’s Hispanic community, and the reasons why have not been well understood or well-documented—until now. The Westminster Schools, Georgia State University, and the Goizueta Foundation partnered to conduct a three-year evaluation to identify the barriers and develop strategies for schools and families to overcome them. The data-driven presentation will offer specific tactics to help you attract and support Hispanic families once they enroll.
