Higher Education an Elusive Dream For Latino Californians

A <a href="http://www.chicano.ucla.edu/press/briefs/documents/LPIB_16.pdf">report</a> from the Chicano Studies Research Center at the University of California at Los Angeles released last year, for instance, found that of every 100 first-time Latino students in the state, 75 enter community colleges — and only 7 of them will transfer (6 to CSU campuses). Yet, upon entering community college, 40 percent of these students said they aspired to transfer to a four-year institution.
