Self-Fulfilling Prophecy Not: Using Cultural Assets to Beat the Odds
Hayes, Cleveland; Montes, Adonay; Schroeder, Laurie
Gender and Education, v25 n7 p923-937 2013
In this study, the pedagogies of the home used by Latinos as they attend schools in the USA are highlighted. We hope to use the stories of Arturo and Ruben, successful Latinos, as a means to show that Latinos are developing strategies that can be shared through the telling of their stories and to claim the value of voicing the difficult realities of Latinos as they resist falling victim to anticipated self-fulfilling prophecies and move creatively through the educational pipeline to reach their best defined possible selves.
