The Vanishing Latino Male in Higher Education
Saenz, Victor B.; Ponjuan, Luis
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v8 n1 p54-89 2009
Latino male students are "vanishing" from the American education pipeline, a trend that is especially evident at the secondary and postsecondary levels. The question of why Latino males are vanishing from America's colleges is complex, and this scholarly article explores some of the socio-cultural factors, peer dynamics, and labor force demands that may be conspiring to propagate this trend. The authors expound on various theoretical and empirical explanations for this persisting and troubling trend. (Contains 5 tables, 6 figures, and 2 notes.)
