DescriptionAmong the many recent books on educational reform, Eugene E. Garcia's Hispanic Education in the United States stands out as a landmark work. Garcia vibrantly portrays what works in creating better educational opportunities and effective school reform. He also offers a telling reflection on the bicultural experience of minority groups in the U.S. Culture is an asset in any individual's educational attainment. Garcia shows how and why our educational reforms therefore must seek to build upon rather than downplay the native culture and language of minority students.
About AuthorThis book draws richly from Professor Garcia's experience in Washington D.C., as former director of the U.S. Office of Bilingual Education and Minority Language Affairs, and his work to improve educational attainment in California schools. He is currently dean and professor in the School of Education at the University of California, Berkeley.
