Documenting Implementation Realities: Undocumented Immigrant Students in California and North Carolina
Oseguera, Leticia; Flores, Stella M.; Burciaga, Edelina
Journal of College Admission, n206 p37-43 Win 2010
Although a growing line of research has emerged on the legal history and policy effects of state legislation regarding the college access opportunities of undocumented students, less is written on the implementation stories of these laws and policies in the institutions most likely to enroll undocumented students--the community college. This article examines the communication of legal directives to community college service providers with an emphasis on California, a state with a clear state mandate on the admission and tuition benefit requirements for undocumented students, and North Carolina, a state without a state legislative mandate but with legal directives from the state attorney general although more recently with an updated community college system board decision. The authors argue that the most important location of implementation is the community college and the most important implementers are the college personnel that operate within these sectors.
