Educators, parents, policy-makers, and communities across the country will find this a significant addition to American educational literature and a gold mine of both current information and detailed historical facts. Latinos in the United States have fought hard to attain equality, especially in the field of education. This book focuses on the fight for equal educational access. The contributors reveal that many Latino children still face decades-old challenges. In addition to such obstacles as cultural conflicts and racism, they also face teachers, curricula, and assessments that are not always respectful to their backgrounds. Three major questions form the framework for this landmark work: How can schools address issues of educational equity for Latino students in the United States? How can curricula be reformed to address the needs of these students? How can scholars, community activists, and parents collaborate for the benefit of Latino learners in the United States?
