Latinos, the Academic Ethic, and the Transition to College
Pino, Nathan W.; Martinez-Ramos, Gloria P.; Smith, William L.
Journal of Latinos and Education, v11 n1 p17-31 2012
Research on the academic ethic of Latino college students has not yet been conducted. In order to begin filling this gap in the literature, we surveyed Latino students at a state university to determine whether those who had an academic ethic in high school performed better in college. We also assessed the perceived helpfulness of a variety of factors (1st-year seminar, freshman orientation, parents, peers, high school teachers and guidance counselors, college professors, etc.) in students' experience transitioning from high school to college. Implications of the findings for future research are discussed. (Contains 2 tables and 1 footnote.)
