With the American dream progressively elusive for and exclusive of Latinos, there is an urgent need for empirically and conceptually based macro-level policy solutions for Latino education. Going beyond just exposing educational inequalities, this volume provides intelligent and pragmatic research-based policy directions and tools for change for U.S. Latino Education and other multicultural contexts.

U.S. Latinos and Education Policy is organized round three themes: education as both product and process of social and historical events and practices; the experiences of young immigrants in schools in both U.S. and international settings and policy approaches to address their needs; and situated perspectives on learning among immigrant students across school, home, and community.

With contributions from leading scholars, including Luis Moll, Eugene E. Garcia, Richard P. Durán, Sonia Nieto , Angela Valenzuela, Alejandro Portes and Barbara Flores, this volume enhances existing discussions by showcasing how researchers working both within and in collaboration with Latino communities have employed multiple analytic frameworks; illustrating how current scholarship and culturally oriented theory can serve equity-oriented practice; and, focusing attention on ethnicity in context and in relation to the interaction of developmental and cultural factors. The theoretical and methodological perspectives integrate praxis research from multiple disciplines and apply this research directly to policy.

Review:

"This edited book offers a near comprehensive view on the challenges Latino students face throughout various levels of the US education system.  A series of well-articulated contributions communicates a seamless experience for readers.  Critical issues (e.g., societal identity, public policy, pedagogical practices, individual learning needs) carry readers through three interdependent sections...Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduate, graduate, research, and professional collections."-

           G. Moreno, Northeastern Illinois University, in CHOICE, January 2015

"... an important and timely contribution that forces readers to rethink taken-for-granted discourse, policy, and practice in the field. This volume proposes not only to correctly frame the ways in which the policies addressing the needs of Latino/a students have failed and in many cases have served to reproduce marginality, but a different approach grounded on interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary research that can inform meaningful policy changes."

          Jaime Grinberg, Montclair State University, USA

"Two elements distinguish this volume: its laser focus on policy, and its interdisciplinary and multinational nature.... The sum effect...is to offer a more hopeful vision of education for Latinos/as while at the same time recognizing the difficult struggle that lies ahead."

          Sonia Nieto, University of Massachusetts Amherst (Emerita), From the Foreword
