Against the Odds: An Exploratory Study of Mexican Immigrant Women with Technical Education.
Morgan, Ellen
Hispanic Journal of Behavioral Sciences, v25 n2 p201-21 May 2003
A study examined the experiences of Mexican immigrant women holding a vocational certificate from a technical school in Mexico. Interviews with eight Mexican women living in San Francisco and rural Idaho indicated that vocational education did not ensure success as measured by common social science indicators. However, the informants were highly successful women when measured by their personal standards. (Contains 22 references.) (Author/TD)
