Different data sources will provide different estimates. There are some general trends. The Alliance for Excellent Education addresses some of the issues in estimating 4-year graduation rates. The data they report for 2005-2006 show 4 year graduation rates for Asians at 85%, and whites at 76%. Hispanics, as in most surveys, lag behind, at 56%. Some of the lag in Hispanic achievement must be related to immigration, but other data sources show persistent gaps in educational attainment even after three generations of US residency for Hispanics.

The low rates of 4-year high school graduation for African Americans (53%) and Native Americans (52%) in Texas indicate that factors beside immigration status are contributing to the high rates of high school non-completion in Texas.
