Acculturation and Planning for College among Youth of Mexican Descent.
Hurtado, Maria T.; Gauvain, Mary
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v19 n4 p506-16 Nov 1997
A study of 410 Mexican American and European American high school students, with follow-up of graduating seniors the following year, found that acculturation among Mexican American youth was not related to aspirations or planning for college but did predict future college attendance. Among both ethnic groups, fathers' education influenced adolescents' college aspirations and planning behaviors. (SV)
