Latino High School Students' Perceptions of Caring: Keys to Success
Garza, Rubén; Soto Huerta, Mary Esther
Journal of Latinos and Education, v13 n2 p134-151 2014
This mixed methods investigation specifically examined Latino high school adolescents' perceptions of teacher behaviors that demonstrate caring. A chi-square test was conducted to analyze the frequency of responses, and focus group interviews were conducted to expand on the results. The data indicated that although Latino male students were as likely to perceive the same behaviors Latina female students perceived as important or very important, a higher percentage of female students rated the same items as important. This investigation situates Latino high school adolescents' voices as a pivotal agent to inform about the critical nature of caring for all students.
