LATINO ACCESS AND STRUGGLES TO EDUCATION AND THE DACA

Introduction
The United States is home to many of the Latinos, most of them coming from
different Spanish speaking countries. The number of the Latinos that are born in the United
States has gone up with the number of foreign-born Latinos going down. Most of this
population is living in poor conditions and low-income households, this makes it hard for
them to be able to achieve the goals that they what to with no resources. Despite education
been a basic right not many of the Latinos are able to access it.
The Hispanic Community and Education
Latinos are among the people who are faced with discrimination as they go on with
their day to day activities; they are normally faced with road blocks so achieving success
becomes hard. A research from The American Bar Association's Commission on the Hispanic
Legal Rights and Responsibilities showed that Latinos continue to face unfair treatment when
it comes to accessing higher employment and securing employment. They are yet to enjoy
equal rights and the benefits that other American citizens enjoy. Very few Latinos are able to
attain education about 17% are high school dropouts. Some change has however registered in
the education attainment when it comes to Latinos.
In the last decade, the rate of high school dropouts has reduced and the number of the
people enrolling in colleges has increased this has been helpful to lowering the rate of school
drop outs national wide. Among the things the data from a research carried out last year
(2016) showed as most important to the Hispanic community one was education, the others
included voting during the 2016 presidential elections, terrorism and economy and healthcare
as well.
More Latinos seem to be getting a post-secondary education than they did several
years ago, but they are still lagging behind when it comes to obtaining a four-year- degree. A

research conducted in 2014 showed that in the age bracket of 25 to 29 years only 15% had
been able to attain education up to degree level or higher while the white of the same age
bracket 44% of them had attained a bachelor degree (Anaya, 2014).
As the Latino students are walking into the school they are met by very low
expectations, the teachers expect very little of them. This may be due to the perception that
has been created by the Latino community. The students are doomed to fail as soon as they
set foot in schools. The teachers are normally not accommodating of their culture.
Barriers to Accessing Education
One of the main problems that the Hispanic community is facing when they try to
access education is the economy. Most of the Latinos are unemployed; this brings the
number to about 13.2 percent while the rate of national unemployment is 9.8 percent. The
rise is too high it points to the start recession. The number of the Hispanics without jobs has
doubled more than it was before the recession started. The young adults and the teens are the
major sources of income for the Latino families. The teens are also affected which means the
families will not do well since they are also unemployed. This makes the families not to have
enough money for education.
. A 2014 national Journal poll showed that among the 66% of the Latinos who had
job wanted to support their families since they were not able to enroll in college. Most of the
Latino start schools without the financial and social capability as compared to what the other
student receive; the schools are normally not willing to help those who start with disparities.
Most of the Latino families have migrated into America and they lack the necessary
information when it comes to the United States education system.
Their academic success is undermined further by the lack of enough resources and
the relationship they have with the teachers which is weak. With this bad start, they are not

employment opportunity. Most of The Hispanic families are of the opinion that a university
or a college degree is the requirement need for securing a job. The children w...
