Summary

Latinos and Education has long been a landmark anthology in the field of education, the first to review and challenge the multiple and complex issues affecting Latino students. The welcome re-edition of this deeply relevant and useful reader culls the best of contemporary scholarly approaches to discuss the variety of issues essential to understanding the complex dynamics of a growing Latina and Latino population. Internationally-renowned scholars Antonia Darder and Rodolfo D. Torres retain the anthology’s original focus on the link between educational practice and the larger socioeconomic and structural dimensions that shape life for the nation’s largest and most rapidly growing minority group. All new and still-highly accessible chapter selections establish a useful balance between theory and practice. They discuss themes such as political economy, historical views of Latinos and schooling, identity, the politics of language, cultural democracy in the classroom, community involvement and Latinos in higher education. The book concludes with suggestions for further reading.

Latinos and Education: A Critical Reader is a must-read collection for a new generation of students in education, Latino studies, and sociology.
