Examining Literature on Hispanic Student Achievement in the Southeastern United States and North Carolina
Parker, Michele A.; Segovia, Edelmira; Tap, Bethany
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v15 n1 p55-68 Jan 2016
We surveyed literature on factors that may influence Hispanic students academically including generational status, gender roles, and use of language in the Southeastern United States and North Carolina. We discuss how risk factors can be addressed (e.g., increasing awareness of risk factors, tutoring, mentoring, and after-school programs). We provide specific suggestions for future research designed to mediate risk factors and increase the educational attainment of Hispanics in K-12 and higher education in this region.
