Making Decisions about College: Understanding the Information Sources of Chicana Students.
Ceja, Miguel
This study examined how a group of 20 Chicana high school seniors made decisions about college. The majority of Chicanas in this study noted that they are not able to rely on their parents as information sources given their parents' lack of familiarity with the college choice process. As a result, these students were not able to receive information from their parents that could have assisted them in their decisions about college. Consequently, these students viewed the school as their primary source to access college-related information. Data from one-on-one interviews suggest that for Chicanas, being able to navigate successfully through the process of college decision making and planning may be a great feat given the structure of opportunities that are available within the school setting.
