Didn’t Someone Once Write A Book…

…about getting Hispanic students into college, and supporting them while they’re there?

USA Today reports:

Pushed by their parents and educators, more Hispanics than ever are attending college in the hopes of securing their place in the U.S. middle class, presenting a growing challenge for institutions that in the past have catered to mostly white students. As they navigate challenges such as the bureaucracy of higher education and paying tuition in an environment where so few teachers, administrators and students look like them, many Latino students say they are worried higher education institutions are happily taking their money without making sure their specific needs are being met.

Are the problems mentioned in the linked article unique to being Hispanic, or do they apply to anyone with similar socioeconomic and academic conditions?
