about this item

Latino Access to Higher Education explores the presence and experiences of Latinos in academia, with a focus on the most disadvantaged Latino students (i.e., first-generation and immigrant Latinos). It espouses the theory that, in order for significant change for more equitable educational practices to occur, reflective learning mechanisms and accountability measures must be designed, instituted, monitored, and assessed over time. This book seeks to positively influence how the cultural and linguistic diversity of students in America’s public school system and higher education are viewed by educators. It exposes common myths, utilizes elements of Critical Race Theory, and incorporates examples of the Latino experience in higher education.
