Due to globalization and education inflation, college has become a necessity to be competitive in the global workforce. College graduates are more likely to be global citizens than those who do not participate in college as they are exposed to increasingly international curricula and a diverse student body (Yeaton, García, Soria, & Huerta, 2017). Unfortunately, Latinos do not enroll in the same numbers as their middle- and upper-class White peers. To abate the discrepancies in college participation of Latino students as compared to other racial groups, programs that have shown to increase college access need to be explored. Dual credit has been a vehicle to potentially increase college participation of Latino students (García, 2014). While the unit of analysis in the small corpus of research relating to dual credit has been on the student, the research on individuals responsible for dual credit on high school campuses is even more nascent.
