Hispanic Experience in Higher Education: Mexican Southern Baptists' Attitudes toward Higher Education.
Guerrero-Avila, Juan B.
This study explored the attitudes toward higher education of Mexican Southern Baptists in California. Interviews with 15 families and questionnaires completed by 126 high school students show that members of this group hold positive attitudes toward higher education but financial constraints pose an obstacle too difficult for many of them to overcome. The chapters are: (1) "Introduction to the Study"; (2) "Review of the Literature"; (3) "Research Methodology"; (4) "Analysis of Data and Findings"; and (5) "Discussion, Conclusions and Recommendations." Ten appendixes contain supplemental information and materials used in the study. (Contains 3 figures, 16 tables, and 11 references.) (SLD)
