Educational Attainment in Immigrant Families: Community Context and Family Background
Gonzalez discusses the likelihood to enter post-secondary schooling among white, black, Latino, and Asian children who have two parents that are immigrants; have one parent who is foreign born; or who are children of native-born parents. Children from homes with two parents that are immigrants go further in school. Children in homes with one parent who is an immigrant have educational trajectories similar to their counterparts in homes with no immigrant parents. Additionally, parental educational attainment and the social capital of the family are clear predictors in determining how far children of native parents go in school, but are not as strong determinants for children of immigrant parents.
