The Spanish-English Language Barrier and Its Effects on the Academic Achievement of Three Male Mexican Immigrant Students
MetadataShow full item record
The demographics of the United States are consistently changing. Approximately one in eight people currently living in the United States are Hispanic in origin. Mexicans are now the largest group of immigrants. This study examined the Spanish-English language barrier and its effect on the academic achievement of three male Mexican immigrant students. To determine those effects three Mexican male immigrant students and their parents were interviewed. The results of this study suggest that the typical explanations given by educators nationwide for the failure of Mexican-American students are seriously in error.
