Preparing Latinos/as for a Flat World: The Community College Role
Sullivan, Leila Gonzalez
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v6 n4 p397-422 2007
Thomas Friedman's 2006 book, "The World Is Flat: A Brief History of the Twenty-First Century," has caused both dialogue and controversy. This article explores implications of Friedman's ideas for the education of Latinos/as in American community colleges. A review of current literature addresses Hispanic demographics, workforce projections, the role of community colleges in workforce education, access and success issues, and strategies for serving Latinos/as effectively. Federal, state, and institutional policy changes are proposed.
