Despite their numbers, Latinos continue to lack full and equal participation in all facets of American life, including education. This book provides a critical discussion of the role that select Ka€“12 educational policies have and continue to play in failing Latino students. The author draws upon institutional, national, and statewide data sets, as well as interviews among students, teachers, and college administrators, to explore the role that public policies play in educating Latino students. The book concludes with specific recommendations that aim to raise achievement, college transition rates, and success among Latino students across the preschool through college continuum. Chapters cover high dropout rates, access to college-preparation resources, testing and accountability, financial aid, the Dream Act, and affirmative action.Expanding the Pathway to Higher Education Through Public Policy Frances Contreras ... 123a€“124 percent plans, 140 Talented 20 program, 140 Florida Department of Education, 67 Fourteenth Amendment, 3, 55, 98, 99, 123, 143, ...
