'For years, I have relied on the first edition of Chicano School Failure and Success to introduce my students to a deeply important set of issues, and a remarkable group of Chicano/Latino as well as white scholars. It has had a deep impact. The arrival of a new, expanded, and updated version reporting many more research findings, theories of educational change, and recommendations for policy changes is a major event. This is a book that will help researchers, teachers and educational leaders, policymakers, and students across the country understand educational questions of great consequence to the nation's future.' - Dr Gary Orfield
