The children and grandchildren of immigrants in California are getting more education than the generation before them, but the achievement of people with Mexican roots lags behind that of some other ethnic groups, in part because they have a larger gap to close, a study concludes.

Produced by the San Francisco-based Public Policy Institute of California, the study found that 35 percent of second-generation immigrants in the state, ages 30 to 39, had completed at least a four-year college education. Only 23 percent of first-generation immigrants, ages 57 to 66, had at least a four-year degree. Fifteen percent of first-generation Mexican-Americans had a four-year college degree, compared with 4 percent of Mexican-Americans of the previous generation.
