The immigrant parents of high-achieving Mexican American students have several characteristics in common. Although their own formal education is often limited, they place great importance on education. They communicate with their children. They are oriented towards the future. They have strong moral values and impart them to their children. They see their own sacrifices as worthwhile if they enable their children to have a better future. These parents through their own intelligence and hard work have managed to transcend difficult circumstances and help their children to achieve their dreams.
