Mexican American Women's Reflections from Public High School
Taylor, Kay Ann; Fernandez-Bergersen, Sandra Luz
Journal of Latinos and Education, v14 n1 p6-24 2015
This qualitative case study examined 5 Mexican American women's experiences at the intersection of race and gender in public high school. Critical race theory provided the analysis and interpretation. The significant findings of this research included the following: (a) Racism is endemic and pervasive in public education; (b) many educational entities operate via colorblindness; (c) the participants perceived social justice as the solution to ending racism and oppression; (d) learning to navigate the system is necessary to be successful academically; and (e) teachers, counselors, and peers are perpetrators of racism and gender stereotypes in public education for Mexican American females.
