Notes

Abstract: Education is essential for better health, a secure, stable income, and personal improvement. Many Latinos are marginalized by the structure of the American education system and do not have access or exposure to the same opportunities as wealthier Anglo-Americans do. 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 paper explores how many Latino disparities could be alleviated through exposure to quality higher education and the associated benefits.
