Community as Resistance: Reconceptualizing Historical Instances of Community within Latin@ Education
Rothrock, Racheal M.
Journal of Latinos and Education, v16 n3 p263-267 2017
The term "community" is drawn upon within critical educational literature that seeks to address inequity experienced by students of color in schools, yet little explicit discussion of its meaning and history is presented. In this article, I offer one way of thinking about community. I propose that it has existed as resistance within the context of Latin@ education between the turn of the twentieth century through the latter part. Using a critical human geography lens, I argue that this history holds importance because spaces are (re)productions of past spaces. This offers possibilities for informing and inspiring present-day critical pedagogies.
