As I was going through my boxes of textbooks, I came across a book titled, “Critical race counterstories along the chicana/chicano educational pipeline”… “Hhhmmm….interesting” I thought. So I began reading. And then I saw this chart titled, “Chicana/o educational pipeline at the turn of the 21st century”.
I have managed to make it to the “7” who graduated with a B.A. degree. This chart along with the fact that my sister is pursuing her Masters Degree and that my mother has a Masters Degree, inspire me to continue pursuing a higher education.
