The purpose of this study was to present an analysis of federal and state policies aimed at facilitating attainment of higher education to undocumented students. The major focus of this study was on the California Senate Bill 130 and Senate Bill 131.
The major findings indicate that undocumented students, who live in low socioeconomic status, are at most risk of drop out thus continuing their cycle of poverty if they do not have an incentive to continue with their education. The California DREAM Act presents a hope to undocumented students who want to pursue a higher education by providing in-state tuition, state funded scholarships, and California grants and loans.
These findings suggest that social workers can take leadership roles in educating the undocumented students and their families to make the college enrollment as smooth as possible.
