Critical Care and Problematizing Sense of School Belonging as a Response to Inequality for Immigrants and Children of Immigrants
DeNicolo, Christina Passos; Yu, Min; Crowley, Christopher B.; Gabel, Susan L.
Review of Research in Education, v41 n1 p500-530 Mar 2017
This chapter examines the factors that contribute to a sense of school belonging for immigrant and immigrant-origin youth. Through a review of the education research on critical care, the authors propose a framework informed by "cariño conscientizado"--critically conscious and authentic care--as central to reconceptualizing notions of school belonging. Research studies on teacher-student and peer relationships, student agency, and organizing are reviewed to identify how they function to disrupt structural factors that maintain educational inequities. Belonging as a concept is problematized through a re-envisioning of curriculum, pedagogy, and school-community relationships as a means to reduce inequality for immigrant and immigrant-origin youth and children.
