Investing in Latino Children and Youth

Edited by:


September 2021 | 305 pages | SAGE Publications, Inc
As a rapidly aging nation, the future economic health of the United States will in part depend upon resources invested in the early development, educational attainment, and economic security of the country’s children and youth. This volume of The ANNALS focuses particularly upon the circumstances and contributions of Latinx children and youth in this wider U.S. context.  

Comprising experts in the fields of public policy, sociology, demography, psychology, and more, the volume examines risks and opportunities that Latinx children and youth face across place, education, family, health, and economics. The volume presents both up-to-date facts and insights from Latinx experiences to inform public policy and improve social investment in Latinx youth.
