Zaragoza-Petty, Alma L.; Zarate, Maria Estela
Journal of Urban Learning, Teaching, and Research, v10 p64-72 2014
This study investigates the role of math perceptions on the college enrollment of Latinas in urban settings. Using primarily qualitative methods, this study examines the K-12 schooling experiences of 35 Latina students who were part of a larger fifteen-year study. Students had different college enrollment outcomes despite having similarly low mathematics trajectories. Math ability perceptions prevailed as a theme that played a role in their college enrollment.
