A Profile of Hispanic Population in the State of Tennessee. [REPORT]

This report documents the place of Hispanic persons in Tennessee. About half of the Hispanic persons in Tennessee are foreign-born, and half were born in the United States. Most of these native-born persons are children. In the next few years, one-in-ten children entering Kindergarten in Tennessee will be Hispanic. In twenty years, these children will be Tennessee’s labor force. If their education is like that in many other states, these children are less likely to complete high school and be economically self-sufficient adults. Yet, Hispanic children have special requirements; Tennessee’s educational system will need to adapt to these needs if it is to prepare these children for the workforce, and to remain economically competitive.
