Notes

Abstract: The research outlined in this paper explores two important issues relevant to understanding Latino identity and educational achievement: ethnic labels and educational injustices. The methodology used was an open-ended interview of a Latina graduate student. This interview was part of an ongoing oral history project for ANTH 3100: Latinos in the US. The interview provided insight into what Latinos experience in today's society. The results were enlightening and disturbingly revealing. Latinos face a great deal of trials and tribulations with the educational system. They have to juggle a double consciousness along with educational odds that make the attainment of a good education a great obstacle.
