Diversity Roundup: Deferral Program Puts Employers in a Sticky Bind

September 26, 2012

More Minority Students Taking SATs: About 45 percent of the 1.66 million students who took the SAT exam last school year were minority students, the most ever on record, NBC News reports. Average SAT scores for reading and writing fell slightly, while math scores remained flat, the exam results showed.

Deferral Program Puts Employers in a Sticky Bind: Employers are proceeding with caution in light of the Obama administration's deportation deferrals program, which does not provide specific amnesty for employers who help young illegal immigrants verify their job statuses, the New York Times reports. A requirement for the applicants to provide proof of having lived in the U.S. for at least five years puts such employers in a bind: Verifying the status would mean admitting they’ve employed an illegal immigrant, an admission that’s a violation of federal law.

Data Shows Minority Students Disproportionately Disciplined: Minority students--especially blacks--are more likely to be reported to the police for disciplinary actions than their white cohort according to data analyzed by the Chicago Tribune, reflecting an alarming trend of the discipline gap between minority and white students.

More Young Adults Are Coming Home: About 20.7 million young adults--those between 18 and 30 years--were living with their parents last year, a 3.9 percent jump from 2010, and a bleak indication that the grim economy has not been kind to millions of young adults, Bloomberg reports. About a quarter of American young adults live with their parents--the highest peak in more than 50 years.
