Black and Latino students in the U.S. are far less likely than their peers of other races to attend elite public universities, according to a new study.
The Center for American Progress, a think tank in Washington, D.C., analyzed federal data from 2014 to compare the types of public colleges students of different races attended. The group divided colleges by selectivity, ranking them as elite public universities, other four-year schools or community colleges.
