Educating Latinos: Part 5

In the final part of the Educating Latinos series, NPR's Claudio Sanchez talks with Hispanic families about the often-conflicting educational and cultural pressures that teenagers face. Many Latino students say they feel trapped between their parents' emphasis on their culture and heritage and the very different demands of American youth culture.
