Description: This presentation discusses research on education for Latinos in the United States. Comparing national statistics, Latino research studies, and an in-depth interview with one Latina faculty member, several pertinent issues such as funding, adequate resources, and tolerance of Latino identity emerged as crucial elements of a quality education. The informant's unique position as a participant, educator, and active parent within the education system provided a positive, objective analysis. This presentation explores how many Latino disparities could be alleviated through exposure to quality higher education and the associated benefits.
