Barriers to College Access for Latino/a Adolescents: A Comparison of Theoretical Frameworks
Gonzalez, Laura M.
Journal of Latinos and Education, v14 n4 p320-335 2015
A comprehensive description of barriers to college access for Latino/a adolescents is an important step toward improving educational outcomes. However, relevant scholarship on barriers has not been synthesized in a way that promotes coherent formulation of intervention strategies or constructive scholarly discussion. The goal of this article is to synthesize the barriers literature briefly as a basis for comparing and evaluating possible frameworks for addressing barriers. The bridging multiple worlds model, social capital theory, and social cognitive career theory are 3 possible frameworks for addressing barriers to college access for Latinos/as. Implications are given for future barriers research and programmatic interventions.
