Delving into the often unexplored areas of class, race, and power struggles, The Power of Parents poses a unique and original critical examination of the relationship between bicultural parents and the school system. Written with students and practitioners in mind, it challenges past research that has traditionally argued bicultural parents are incompetent, apathetic, and do not value education, hence the cause of their children’s academic underachievement. This book sheds new light on why bicultural parents often mistrust the school system and uncovers the contradictions inherent in the relationship between them and school personnel.

From the Back Cover:

?The Power of Parents is a superb contribution to the growing study of bicultural (for example, Latino) parental involvement in the public school system. In an engaging and intellectually stimulating manner, Edward M. Olivos masterfully crafts a case that authentic dialogue between bicultural parents and schools will not occur without tension or conflict. Drawing from models of structural inequality in society and anti-deficit thinking, and the actual voices of disenfranchised Latino parents, Dr. Olivos provides the field with a probing and intellectually useful theoretical framework that seeks possible pathways for emancipatory and democratic experiences for bicultural parent involvement. I highly recommend this outstanding book, particularly for use in teacher education programs.? Richard R. Valencia is Professor of Educational Psychology and Faculty Associate of the Center for Mexican American Studies, The University of Texas at Austin, and Editor of Chicano School Failure and Success: Past, Present, and Future (2nd ed., 2002)

?The Power of Parents documents why bicultural parents are resistant to participate in institutions, such as schools, that are alienating and unkind to them and their children. This book does not just point out the gross inequality of access in schools for bicultural, especially Spanish-speaking parents, but also offers a bold and daring solution to this problem. This book is an important testimony of bicultural parent empowerment as well as a political tool to be used. Anyone slightly interested in equal treatment and equality for bicultural children and their parents in U.S. schools must read this book.? Luis Urrieta, Jr., Professor of Chicana/o Studies and Education, University of California at Davis
