College-Level Choice of Latino High School Students: A Social-Cognitive Approach
Gonzalez, Laura M.
Journal of Multicultural Counseling and Development, v40 n3 p144-155 Jul 2012
Latino students attend 2-year colleges more often than 4-year colleges. This has an impact on the rate of bachelor's degree attainment, because the transfer rate between the 2 levels is low. The author uses national data to identify predictors associated with college-level choice and then uses social-cognitive career theory (Lent, Brown, & Hackett, 1994) to frame counseling implications.
