There are roughly 45 million Latina(o) people living in the United States today and immigration scholars agree that the population of undocumented immigrants in the U.S. is around 12 million today, many of whom are of Hispanic origin. Immigration scholars also agree that a major unanswered question for the future of U.S. society is how well the children of these population groups will "make it" in the educational system and therefore begin to move up the socio-economic ladder. Will their "achievement" in the educational system parallel the experience and success of other immigrant groups of generations past? Or will many of these children experience much higher drop-out rates and if so, with what consequences? And are there policy options to prevent this from happening? Those are the very important issues this book will explore.
