The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Hispanic Students: Adjusting Dreams to Reality.

Menanteau-Horta, Dario.

Hispanics are the fastest growing minority in the United States. The high dropout rate of Hispanics in high school perpetuates their living below the poverty level. In 1995 a professor of rural sociology explored the educational aspirations and occupational choices of Hispanic youth. He found that Hispanics have high expectations for their future when they are in high school but that by the time they reach college, their expectations have been lowered. This may represent a more realistic view of society and their chances for success.
