Growing Up in Cuban Miami

Growing Up in Cuban Miami

Immigration, the Enclave, and New Generations

(p.91) Chapter 4 Growing Up in Cuban Miami

Lisandro Pérez

University of California Press

This chapter examines the Cuban-origin sample by taking a wide swath at the CILS data. This analysis has raised more questions that it has answered—the shift to Hispanic identity from the first to the second survey and the disappointing and unexpected academic performance of these students. The chaptewr notes that the experience of children of Cuban immigrants cannot be viewed outside of the context which their parents created. It also stresses that the basis for the CILS study was a sound one—the adaptation process of the children of immigrants may be quite different from that of their first-generation parents. The chapter explains that it was precisely the Cuban exceptionality in its mode of incorporation—the enclave—which reformulated a great deal of what is known about immigrant adjustment.
