CYFC Publishes New eReview on Educational Disparities

By Cari Michaels, Extension Educator — Children, Youth & Family Consortium

The Center for Family Development's Children, Youth & Family Consortium (CYFC) has published the latest issue of the Children's Mental Health eReview, Falling Behind: Understanding the Educational Disparities Faced by Immigrant Latino Students in the U.S.

Authors and editors across Extension centers collaborated with community authors to describe Latino students’ academic achievements, as well as the many opportunity gaps they face in U.S. schools, including economic constraints, language barriers, acculturation issues, and discrimination. Community authors suggest practical ways to use this research in communities, schools, non-profit organizations, and higher education.
