The Educational Experience of Hispanic American Women: The Broken Web. By Teresa McKenna and Flora Ida Ortiz. ISBN 0942177002. $19.95.
La Mujer Latina Series. A most revealing anthology of essays and exposé on the failure of publicly funded institutions to provide and encourage the educational attainment and achievement of Hispanic American women. It also reveals that private parochial schools do by contrast a much better job in educating Hispanic women. It provides evidence that Hispanic women outperform in terms of academic achievement and aspirations Hispanic males, Anglo males and Anglo females and Blacks in parochial schools. Hispanic women are most definitely an academic success story that needs to be communicated to the public at large.
