Description

The U.S. Census Bureau (March 2002) projects that by 2050 the Latino population, currently at 13%, will rise to 24%. School completion rates for Latino students, while rising, are still among the lowest of U.S. ethnic groups. This up-to-date volume examines the central issues facing Latino students, families and schools today, including language, immigration, economic and social class, gender, race, legislation, school environment and a plethora of other topics that underscore the road to educational success for this fast growing demographic.



Educators, parents, policy makers, grants seekers, and foundations will find this work a goldmine of up-to-date and detailed information. In addition to informative and expert entries, there are demographic tables and charts, and an appendix with brief definitions of key terms, sidebars highlighting programs, schools, and studies and selected illustrations.
