Can Latinos Improve their Children’s Education?

- Of course Latinos can improve their children's education. According to a survey conducted by the U.S. Department of Education, Latinos made the largest jump in this domain in the course of the 27-year study. While only 56.2 percent of Latinos completed high school in 1972, this number reached 76.8 percent in 2009. 

- It seems that the experts missed an important factor in their research: the contribution of Latino elders, who themselves suffered from their own lack of education and wanted a better life for their offspring. Those generations of Latino grandparents and parents have well understood the considerable value of schooling for their children's destiny.
