"I Want My Teachers To Like Me": Multiculturalism and School Dropout Rates among Mexican Americans.
Tan, Gerdean
Equity & Excellence in Education, v34 n2 p35-42 Sep 2001
Investigated Mexican American high school students' perceptions of multiculturalism, noting whether perceptions affected academic achievement, intention to graduate, and postsecondary educational aspirations. Surveyed, interviewed, and observed students and staff at schools with low and high Hispanic dropout rates. Students who considered their teachers to be knowledgeable about their cultural experiences and backgrounds were more likely to succeed. Low-dropout schools had higher numbers of bilingual and Hispanic staff. (SM)
