Transforming Education for Hispanic Youth: Broad Recommendations for Policy and Practice - This issue brief examines the high dropout rate among Hispanics, recommending that in order to better address the issue, school staff and education policymakers should depoliticize education for Hispanic youth, appropriately fund public schools, streamline and make intelligible policies that parents and students must follow, discontinue policies that tacitly permit or encourage Hispanic students to drop out, develop standards for school conditions and design comprehensive dropout prevention strategies. This issue brief also includes a self-evaluation tool designed to help school staff and policymakers evaluate their efforts to educate Hispanic youth.
