Engaging Latino Communities for Education Closing the Achievement Gap
MetadataShow full item record
This report, based on the ENLACE model for student success, examines some of the major research in best practices for Latino students and offers policy ideas for state legislators. Although the model intentionally avoids a “one size fits all” approach, program elements usually fit into three categories: Creating a seamless path to college, strengthening student supports, and changing educational institutions. Although this publication highlights the needs of Latino students, most of the research and policy suggestions could apply to and benefit many students, especially other under-represented groups.
