Mexican Americans Acquiring Bachelor's Degrees: Whose Opportunity?
Journal of Latinos and Education, v8 n3 p199-218 2009
This study offers a small, highly contextualized counter-example to several recent large-scale analyses depicting Latino underachievement in higher education (R. Fry, 2002; J. Immerwahr, 2003; S. Miller & E. Garcia, 2004; W. Swail, A. Cabrera, & C. Lee, 2004; W. S. Swail, K. E. Redd, & L. W. Perna, 2003). The purpose is to analyze results from a federal funding program in which qualified and committed Latino students completed university degrees in high proportions.
