The State

September 23, 1985

Minority students will be a majority of California's public school enrollment by 1990, ten years earlier than expected, educational researchers predict. Between 1970 and 1980 the proportion of minority students grew from 15.6% to 42.9%, said the report by Policy Analysis for California Education (PACE), based at the University of California, Berkeley, and Stanford University. "This increase was the largest in the nation," the report said, adding, "If growth continues at anywhere near this rate, minority enrollment should exceed 50% of total (kindergarten-through-12th grade) enrollment before 1990."
