Following Their Dreams in an Inequitable System: Latino Students Share Their College Experience
In this report, we spotlight a traditional path to overcoming inequality and move up the economic ladder in our country: higher education. UnidosUS hopes to draw attention to the experience of Latino students in college and highlight some troubling trends we see. The words of the students and parents are compelling and help to make visible to school leaders and policymakers some of the critical changes that are needed to improve the Higher Education Act. These changes, if adopted by lawmakers and school leaders, can ensure that law will better address the systemic biases that are leading to such vastly different and racialized outcomes among our students.
