Abstract

For the last decade, the American political, economic, and educational landscape has weathered a destructive storm. That period of time left a large amount of Americans battered, but those effected managed to make it through. As a new age dawns in the United States, so does a new challenge. The crisis is that American leaders are omitting the Hispanic population to the point that their influences on politics, economics and education are being overlooked. These actions toward the Hispanic population need to be rectified. The reason is that according to the United States Census, Hispanics will constitute about 30 percent of the entire population by 2050, making their influence greater as the years go by. There is less chance of Hispanic influence on politics, economy, and education being utilized correctly if this information is not realized. Thus, change through policies has to be made in politics, economics, and education to allow Hispanics to improve their status. These areas have to be split into subsections for evaluation. Politics will be addressed through voter turnout, local and national elections, and the 2016 presidential election. For economics, Hispanics’ influence on labor force and buying power within the United States will need to be addressed. Lastly, education will address Hispanic college attainment and immigrant students within the United States. By analyzing the elements of politics, economy, and education, one will begin to understand why Hispanics are critical for the future of America.
