9780292706651: Chicanas and Chicanos in School: Racial Profiling, Identity Battles, and Empowerment (LOUANN ATKINS TEMPLE WOMEN & CULTURE SERIES)

By any measure of test scores and graduation rates, public schools are failing to educate a large percentage of Chicana/o youth. But despite years of analysis of this failure, no consensus has been reached as to how to realistically address it. Taking a new approach to these issues, Marcos Pizarro goes directly to Chicana/o students in both urban and rural school districts to ask what their school experiences are really like, how teachers and administrators support or thwart their educational aspirations, and how schools could better serve their Chicana/o students.

In this accessible, from-the-trenches account of the Chicana/o school experience, Marcos Pizarro makes the case that racial identity formation is the crucial variable in Chicana/o students' success or failure in school. He draws on the insights of students in East Los Angeles and rural Washington State, as well as years of research and activism in public education, to demonstrate that Chicana/o students face the daunting challenge of forming a positive sense of racial identity within an educational system that unintentionally yet consistently holds them to low standards because of their race. From his analysis of this systemic problem, he develops a model for understanding the process of racialization and for empowering Chicana/o students to succeed in school that can be used by teachers, school administrators, parents, community members, and students themselves.

About the Author:

MARCOS PIZARRO is Associate Professor and Coordinator of the Master’s Program in Mexican American Studies at San José State University.

Review:

"By utilizing a multivocal narrative methodology, this book opens a new and important area of qualitative research that studies the racializing of school-age youth, complementing the work of researchers such as Henry Giroux and Peter McLaren.... The book is accessible to teachers who must daily grapple with the challenges of teaching cross-racial populations of students. Teachers (and students) often navigate these turbulent issues with minimal support and scarce resources. This book helps to fill that gap." (Margaret E. Montoya, Professor of Law, University of New Mexico)
