The population of the United States is becoming more racially and ethnically diverse. This increasing diversity is an important issue because it is changing the cultural, political, and economic landscape of American life. Our schools, workplaces, legislatures, and national character are constantly being shaped by this growing diversity. Consequently, race/ethnicity issues concern the entire nation, not just the members of minority groups. You will look at the similarities and discrepancies between different race/ethnic groups in terms of educational attainment, occupations and earnings. Over time, all race/ethnic groups have experienced increased education levels, more occupational choices, and higher earnings. However, the rate of these gains varies between race/ethnic groups. After seeing the gaps between race/ethnic groups, you will consider why these discrepancies exist.
