Polish and Italian Schooling Then, Mexican Schooling Now?

US Ethnic School Attainments across the Generations of the 20th Century

This paper relies on data from the census and the Current Population Survey (CPS) to compare levels of education attained by second-generation young people from important immigrant groups during the last great wave of immigration and by second-generation Mexican Americans today. In addition, it provides evidence, based on the CPS, about the earnings relative to level of schooling of the Mexican American second generation today.
