Donato, Katharine M.; Wojtkiewicz, Roger A.
New England Journal of Public Policy, v11 n2 p99-111 Spr-Sum 1996
Evaluates how Puerto Ricans in the United States are worse off relative to other groups, and whether their disadvantage remains after the controls of family background and ethnic status are added. Results suggest that, compared to Whites, Blacks, and Mexicans, Puerto Ricans have a unique educational disadvantage that contributes to their having the lowest high school graduation rates. (GR)
