The first CSRC Research Report to examine the Latina/o education pipeline, "Falling through the Cracks: Critical Transitions in the Latina/o Educational Pipeline" (Pérez Huber et al. 2006), inaugurated a series of reports that have sought to address critical issues related to the Latina/o education pipeline and to provide policy recommendations to improve educational access and opportunity for Latina/o students across the United States, with a particular focus on California. For the past ten years these CSRC Research Reports and related CSRC Policy and Issues Briefs, which have been published in conjunction with the UCLA Chicano Studies Research Center's annual Latina/o Education Summit, have served as an important resource for understanding current issues and policies in Latina/o education. This report surveys ten years of research findings produced for the Latina/o Education Summit, revealing the slow rate of progress for Latino students set against an exponential increase in the Latino population in the state. This report shows that small gains have been made in educational equity for Latinas/os during the past decade. The report also shows however that educational attainment for Latinas/os is nowhere near where it should be.
