Abstract

Latino parents trust a secondary school system that often misclassifies and misdirects their children. Survey results from three high school sites indicate that Latino parents trust that the school is doing what is best for their children, and they do not understand the importance of being an advocate for their children. Important curriculum decisions are being made for Latino students without informing their parents. Rather than pointing to a lack of expectations on the part of the parents, it would be more fruitful to consider what is happening to the students inside the school setting.
