- Publisher's Summary
- The Latino Education Crisis not only threatens to dash the middle class aspirations of the nations largest immigrant group, it is also an ominous sign for democratic engagement and global competitiveness for U.S. society as a whole. This timely book argues that this crisis is more aptly characterized as a Mexican Education Crisis. This book brings together voices that are rarely heard on the same stageMexican and U.S. scholars of migration, schooling, and human developmentto articulate a new approach to Mexican-American schooling: a bi-national focus that highlights the interpersonal assets of Mexican-origin children. Contributors document the urgency of adopting this approach and provide a framework for crossing national and disciplinary borders to improve scholarship, policy, and practice associated with PreK12 schooling.
