The Mexican American Ready for College.
Kavanaugh, Paul C.; Retish, Paul M.
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v19 n3 p136-44 Jul 1991
The lack of base preparation for Mexican Americans that results in their underrepresentation in college is discussed, and some beginning remedies for the identified problems are suggested. Barriers at four-year colleges and universities are identified in areas of finances, unfair admissions criteria, academic preparedness, and the lack of Hispanic faculty and administrators. Public policy implications are considered. (NB)
