Hispanic Origin, Socio-Economic Status, and Community College Enrollment
O'Connor, Noga
Journal of Higher Education, v80 n2 p121-145 Mar-Apr 2009
This study explores the relationship between parental SES, ethnicity, and college enrollment. Parental SES is found to translate into a significantly smaller advantage for Hispanics compared to Blacks and Whites. This statistical interaction suggests that high-SES Hispanics are at a unique disadvantage, most likely due to limited access to information about higher education. (Contains 3 tables, 3 figures and 3 notes.)
