Villalba, Jose A.; Brunelli, Maria; Lewis, Lucy; Orfanedes, Dean
Professional School Counseling, v10 n5 p506-509 Jun 2007
A qualitative study, using focus groups of Latino parents living in a rural Southeastern U.S. community, was conducted to explore the experiences of elementary-school-aged Latino children. Using the consensual qualitative research method to analyze participants' responses, this study identified four general themes that impact Latino children in these communities: (a) school/teacher characteristics and resources, (b) academic experiences in U.S. schools, (c) family and cultural traits, and (d) personal/social/economic factors. Implications for school counselors are detailed. (Contains 1 table.)
