San Bernardino County underperformed compared to the rest of California in terms of higher education achievement in 2012.

The percentage of people below poverty level for San Bernardino County was 17.6 percent while it was 15.3 percent for the state of California.
Note: The United States Census Bureau considers "Hispanic or Latino" to be a place of origin, not a race. Therefore, the Census allows citizens to report both their race and that they are from a "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin simultaneously. As a result, the percentages in each column of the racial demographics table will exceed 100 percent. Each column will add up to 100 percent after removing the "Hispanic or Latino" place of origin percentages, although rounding by the Census Bureau may make the total one or two tenths off from being exactly 100 percent.
David McLaughlin is the superintendent of the Hesperia Unified School District.
