Meier, Kenneth John and Leal, David L., eds. 2010. The Politics of Latino Education. Teachers College Press.

Full text not available from this repository.


Education is one of the most important public policy issues facing Latinos in the United States today, but the political dynamics behind Latino school achievement and failure are often misunderstood--and at times, overlooked all together. In twelve revealing essays, this volume brings together 23 accomplished and influential voices to examine the political factors that shape the Latino educational experience. With a breadth of expertise no other volume can match, this resource provides an authoritative introduction to the U.S. education policy process, as well as a specific survey of how that process relates to Latinos; covers a wide range of topics important to improving education for Latinos, including standardized testing, immigration, bilingual education, and the Latino education ''pipeline''; incorporates a wealth of current statistical data, as well as qualitative research and firsthand experiences, to show how policy decisions actually play out in real classrooms; and brings together experts from a wide range of perspectives within the fields of political science, public administration, and education.
