This paper investigates trends in educational inequality in the United States. We analyze changes in educational attainment and quality among different races and genders. Through our thorough research we found that although there has been a general increase in the level of education attained by both men and women of all races, the Hispanic population continues to fall behind. The data indicates that education quality, represented by the types of institutions, has improved minimally in the past years. While majority races disproportionately attend private non-profit institutions, a more significant percentage of students at private for-profit schools are of minority races. The aim of this paper is to enlarge the exposure of educational inequality for students of different genders and races in the United States to the public.
