Education, not immigration #1 Hispanic issue

National Council of La Raza released a study today that shows the #1 election issue for Hispanics is education. Specifically, 89% of Latinos believe that improving public education should be a “very important priority” for the next president.

According to the NCLR press release, other findings were:
-- Latino voters consider the high dropout rate among Latino students to be the greatest educational problem for the Latino community in the U.S.
-- Half of those surveyed declared that they considered the quality of public schools to be “mediocre” or “poor.”
-- More than 80% of the Latino electorate feels that one way to improve public education in America is to hire more teachers with expertise in the subjects they will teach.

The poll surveyed 1,000 registered Latino voters.
