Summary

The third edition of the best selling collection, Chicano School Failure and Success presents a complete and comprehensive review of the multiple and complex issues affecting Chicano students today. Richly informative and accessibly written, this edition includes completely revised and updated chapters that incorporate recent scholarship and research on the current realities of the Chicano school experience.

It features four entirely new chapters on important topics such as la Chicana, two way dual language education, higher education, and gifted Chicano students. Contributors to this edition include experts in fields ranging from higher education, bilingual education, special education, gifted education, educational psychology, and anthropology. In order to capture the broad nature of Chicano school failure and success, contributors provide an in-depth look at topics as diverse as Chicano student dropout rates, the relationship between Chicano families and schools, and the impact of standards-based school reform and deficit thinking on Chicano student achievement.

Committed to understanding the plight and improvement of schooling for Chicanos, this timely new edition addresses all the latest issues in Chicano education and will be a valued resource for students, educators, researchers, policy makers, and community activists alike.

"The first edition of Chicano School Failure and Success was a standard text for those of us who conducted research and taught courses on Chicano educational issues. The Second Edition added the voice of emerging new scholars and topics in the field and remained at the cutting edge of our thinking on research and policy. This Third Edition is an important advancement forward and remains a treasure and a must-read for researchers and educators who care about the education of Chicanos throughout the educational pipeline."-Daniel G. Solorzano, Professor, Social Science & Comparative Education Division, University of California, Los Angeles

"The newly expanded and updated version of Chicano School Failure and Success is a rich melding and unique combination of expertise, experience, and exploration of the many complex problems and multidimensional issues experienced by Chicano students. I am excited about this edition for it certainly fills the gaps in our understanding. Valencia prolifically challenges leaders, educators, researchers, and advocates alike to grapple with the unequal social, political, and cultural systems of U.S. communities. No other significant text has these same impressive attributes, making this Third Edition a luminous trifecta accomplishment. I am anxious to use this engaging and provocative text with my very own students."-Enrique G. Murillo, Jr., Professor, Department of Educational Psychology and Counseling, and Executive Director of Latino Education and Advocacy Days (LEAD), California State University, San Bernardino

This textbook introduces a deeply important set of issues, and a remarkable group of Chicano/Latino as well as white scholars. Richly informative and accessibly written, this edition includes completely revised and updated chapters that incorporate recent scholarship and research on the current realities of the Chicano school experience. This is a textbook 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. The textbook I received was exactly as I had ordered it, ecampus did a great job and I was very pleased with their service.
